    You can setup your problem like this \[\frac{ x }{ 4 } - \frac{ x }{ 6 } = 60\] then you just have to solve for x

    from there you can apply the LCM to the left side and solve for x

    ok. the tutors fee is x and you have 4 students who will split the fee so that gives you x/4 then they say that if you get 2 more students i.e 6 they will split the fee which makes x/4-x/6 now they give you the amount as 60php so \[\frac{ x }{ 4 } - \frac{ x }{ 6 } = 60\]

    now if you use the LCM you'll get \[\frac{ 3 }{ 3 } * \frac{ x }{ 4 } - \frac{ 2 }{ 2 } *\frac{ x }{ 6 } = 60\] then you just combine and solve for x
