3/(5*6) = 3/30 = 1/10 = 0.1

times 4 = 0.4

(3/5)/ 6 = (3/5) * (1/6) = 3/30 = 1/10

(1/10) * 4 = ?

Both the numerator and the denominator of 4/10 are divisible by 2.

4/10 = 2/5

This is your first step:

** he divides the land equally into 4 smaller plots of land.**

Then take 3/4 of that number to answer the question.

- math - an easier way? -
