    So the first week she posted 45 (2/3) or 30 of them and had 15 left. This week she posted 15 (4/5) of them so had 12 left.

    So, 1/3 of the posters were not originally posted. Then, 1/5 of the remaining 1/3 were not posted. So, 1/5 of 1/3 is 1/15. 45/15 = 3.

    three was right! :) i cant get this one either. There are 75 students in a speech contest. Yesterday, 1/5 of them gave their speeches. Today, 1/3 of the remaining students gave their speeches. How many students still haven't given their speeches?

    Again 75 total and 1/5 gave their speech -> 75 * 1/5 = 15 60 were left (75 - 15) 60 and 1/3 gave their speech -> 60 * 1/3 = 20 40 left (60 - 20)

    1/5 of them were omitted the first time. 1/3 of the 1/5 then gave speeches. 1/5 of 1/3 is 1/15, again. 75/15 = 5.

    She needs more than to just be told the answer. 1/3 of the 90 houses were sold, leaving 60. 1/6 of the 60 were sold, leaving 50. That's how Chad got his answer.
