i really don't get this one. A stock clerk had 600 pads on hand. He then issued 3/8 of his supply of pads to division x, 1/4 to division y and 1/6 to division z. The number of pads remaning in stock is? 125 why and how?

3/8 x 600 = ?
1/4 x 600 = ?
1/6 x 600 = ?

Add the answers to the above problems. Then subtract them from 600. That leaves 125.
