## anonymous 5 years ago two fifths of the 100 passengers stayed in the subway cars until the last stop.how many of the 100 passengers got off the subway cars before the last stop

if 2/5 did not get off then 3/5 must have gotten off 2/5 + 3/5 = 1 now find 3/5 of 100 $\frac{3}{5}*\frac{100}{1}$ =300/5 =60
