Paul Picasso painted one-fourth of a house. His friend Monty Monet continued painting the house for eight hours and two-fifths of the house was done. What part of the house can Monty paint in an hour? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Monty  must  have painted     2/5   -  1/4   =   (3/20) of the  house

 

So

 

(3/20)  /  8   =    3 /160  of the house in one hour
