Question:

Tick (✓) the correct answer

What should be subtracted from $\frac{-3}{5}$ to get $-2 ?$

(a) $\frac{-7}{5}$

(b) $\frac{-13}{5}$

(c) $\frac{13}{5}$

(d) $\frac{7}{5}$

Solution:

(d) $\frac{7}{5}$

Let the required number be x.

Now,

$-\frac{3}{5}-x=-2$

$\Rightarrow-\frac{3}{5}=-2+x$

$\Rightarrow x=\left(-\frac{3}{5}+2\right)$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{(-3+10)}{5}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{7}{5}$

Thus, the required number is $\frac{7}{5}$
