Question

Two fifths of the vegetable in Priya’s garden are tomatoes.

A. How many tomatoes are there if Priya’s garden has:
– 20 vegetables
– x vegetables

B. Priya’s garden has 6 tomatoes. How many total vegetables are there?

1. A) ( let t be tomatoes) If Priya has 20 vegetables in her garden, and 2/5 of her garden are tomatoes, that would mean she has 8 tomatoes in her garden.

If Priya has x vegetables in her garden, the equation would be:
2/5 of x = t
x ÷ 5 = 1/5
1/5 x 2 = 2/5
2/5 = t

Apologies if it’s confusing, explaining isn’t my forte.

### ________________________________________________

Step-by-step explanation for Part-A:
We know that:
• 2/5 × vegetable garden = Number of tomatoes
If Priya has 20 vegetables, she will have 20 × 2/5 tomatoes.
• => 20 x 2/5
• => 4 x 2
• => 8 tomatoes
If Priya has x vegetables, she will have x × 2/5 tomatoes.
• x × 2/5
• => 2x/5 tomatoes

### ________________________________________________

Step-by-step explanation for Part-B:
We know that:
• 2/5 × vegetable garden = Number of tomatoes
If Priya has 6 tomatoes, she will have 6 ÷ 2/5 vegetables.
• 6 ÷ 2/5 = vegetables
• => 6 × 5/2 = vegetables
• => 30/2 = vegetables
• => 15 vegetables
