(a): He spends 3/5 of his income on rent which means that he only has 2/5 income left but, 1/4 of the 2/5 is spent on grocery. We multiply the fraction to figure out the fraction of the income he used. 1/4 x 2/5 = 1/10. That means he saves the remaining 9/10 of the 2/5. We multiply again to figure out our final answer. 9/10x2/5 = **9/25 **Please correct me if i'm wrong.

(b) Try B yourself.

Hope this helped a bit
