    if you double the 1/3% then it's 2/6 and that's less than half

    Arada you don't work out this sort of question by eliminating options.... You say 5/12 = 0.41666666...... = 41 + 2/3 ..

    I just told you the answer to this question... There are 12 squares. 5 are shaded. 5/12 = 0.4166666 = 41+2/3%

    can i ask a question Newton? why did you do 5/12? the shaded area is 7 squares so wouldn't it be 7/12?
