Worksheet Overview

This worksheet is about answering word problems and puzzles.



In a room full of people,

1/8 of them wear glasses.

1/6 of them wear contact lenses, and the rest have perfect eyesight.


What fraction of them have perfect eyesight?



1/8 + 1/6 = 3/24 + 4/24 = 7/24

 So 17/24 (24 - 7) have perfect eyesight.
