Pentagon A, rectangle B and triangle C formed the figure below. The ratio of the area of A : B : C is 6 : 5 : 3. If $${1 \over 4}$$of C is shaded, what fraction of the figure is unshaded? The figure is not drawn to scale.

A : B : C = 6 : 5 : 3

(area of Pentagon)/(area of Triangle) = 6/3 = 2 = A/C

= 2c - 1/4c

= (8c - c)/4

unshaded = 7/4c = 7/4 * A/2

unshaded = 7/8 (area of Pentagon).

unshaded = 7/8 (area of figure)

7/8
