1. 1/3 and 1/4 = 12 (Multiply the denominator 3 * 4 =12)
15*12=180
In The Question Requirement is : "then three-tenth of that number is:"
So We Get 3/10
3/10*180 (we can cut 180 is 18 time comes into 10th table )
So 3 * 18 = 54

2. @sarasangma, Question says, 1/3 * 1/4 * X = 15, which means X=180 , yeah ? Then, again, as per question the ans is : 180 * 3/10 = 54.

3. X*1/3*1/4=15
Then X=15*12=180
180*3/10=54

4. I can't understand this question can anyone help me to solve this problems answer

5. 12 × 15 =180

6. How we get 54.can anyone help me out.
