# Each month, lilian spends 1/3 of her salary, saves 3/8 of the remainder and shares the rest of her salary equally among her brother and sister. What fraction of her salary does each of them receive?

Remainder: 3/3 - 1/3 = 2/3

Savings= 3/8 (2/3)

= 6/24 or

LCD or 1/3 and 1/4: 12

4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12

12/12 - 7/12 = 5/12

(5/12) ÷ (2)

Rule in dividing fractions: Multiply the first term by the reciprocal of divisor.

(5/12) × (1/2) = 5/24
