Mr. Yadav bought Sweets = $\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large \frac{1}{2}kg$

After his children had eaten , there was amount of Sweets left = $\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large \frac{1}{10}kg$

Let the amount of eaten be x

x = Total amount - amount left

$\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large x=$  $\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large \frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{10}=\frac{5-1}{10}=\frac{4}{10}=\frac{2}{5}$

$\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large x=\frac{2}{5}$

The amount of eaten is $\dpi{120} \fn_jvn \large \frac{2}{5}.$

My experience with Abhyas is very good. I have learnt many things here like vedic maths and reasoning also. Teachers here first take our doubts and then there are assignments to verify our weak points.
