The sum of the two numbers is
Question:

The sum of the two numbers is $\frac{5}{9}$. If one of the numbers is $\frac{1}{3}$, find the other.

Solution:

It is given that the sum of two numbers is $\frac{5}{9}$, where one of the number $s$ is $\frac{1}{3}$.

Let the other number be $x$.

$\therefore \quad x+\frac{1}{3}=\frac{5}{9}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{5}{9}-\frac{1}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{5}{9}-\frac{3}{9}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{5-3}{9}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{2}{9}$
