Keddy has some hamsters.
of the hamsters are white and
of the remaining hamsters are black. The rest of the hamsters are yellow.
What fraction of the hamsters are yellow?
(Leave your answer as a fraction in simplest form.)
Let the total numbers of hamsters =H
The number of white hamsters =5/6H
H - 5/6H =1/6H - the remaining hamsters
1/6H x 8/9 =4/27H are black hamsters
H - [5/6H + 4/27H] =1/54H - yellow hamsters
H =54 hamsters
5/6 x 54 = 45 are white hamsters
[54 - 45] * 8/9 =8 are black hamsters
9 - 8 = 1 is a yellow hamster.
Yellow hamsters =1 / 54
