Of 220 papers that needed to be filed, Brad filed 1/4th and William filed half. How many papers remain that need to be filed?

  1. 165
  2. 110
  3. 65
  4. 55
Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is D.

Of 220 papers, 1/4+1/2 have already been filed.

First we will add ¼+ ½.

Since ¾ of the 220 papers have already been filed, ¼ of them still need to be filed.

¼×220 = 55.

An easy way to calculate 220/4 is to break up 220 into 200 and 20.

200÷4 = 50
20÷4 = 5
Thus, 220÷4 = 50+5 = 55.
