Alvin has some marbles in a box. He keeps 1/3 of them and gives the remainder to Joyce and Sean. Joyce gets 5/8 of the remainder. What fraction of the marbles does Sean get?

If Alvin keeps 1/3   then the remainder that Alvin gives away is  2/3 of the total

 

Joyce gets 5/8 of the remainder......Sean gets   3/8 of the ramiander

 

2/3   *   3/8   = 6/24 = 1/4   of the total is what Sean gets
