Mary had 
 fliers to post around town. Last week, she posted 2/5 of them. This week, she posted 4/7 of the remaining fliers. How many fliers has she still not posted?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Total fliers= 70

Last week she posted, 2/5 of 70, which is 2/5  x 70 = 28. 

So, she was left with 70-28= 42 fliers. This week she posted 4/7 of 42= 24

So, she has now 42-24=18 fliers left unposted.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
