Eddie buys 100 sheets of heavyweight paper to make a notebook. He places 1/4 of the sheets in a section for English and 1/3 of the reamining sheets in a section for math. Which section is thicker if the 100 sheets of heavyweight paper is 2/5 in per 100 sheets?

I do understand that, but if he uses 1/4 of the paper for the english section and 1/3 of the paper of the other 3/4 for the math section. How would I show this.

I didn't read the problem carefully. :(
(1/3) * (3/4) = 3/12 = 1/4
Both sections are the same size.
