There are 63 new houses being built in a neighborhood. Last month, 1/3 of them were sold. This month, 2/3 of the remaining houses were sold. How many houses are left to be sold?

 

Must be very good with fractions to answer this question. Thanks for your help ya'll!

63 x 1/3 =63/3= 21 houses were sold last month.

63 - 21 = 42 houses remained unsold last month.

42 x 2/3 =[42 x 2] / 3 = 84 / 3 = 28 houses were sold this month.

21 + 28 = 49 houses sold altogether.

63 - 49 =14 houses remain unsold.
