There are 

 new houses being built in a neighborhood. Last month, 2/3 of them were sold. This month, 5/6 of the remaining houses were sold. How many houses are left to be sold?

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

Number of new houses = 54

Number sold last month = 2/3 * 54 = 36

Remaining houses = 54-36 = 18

Of these 5/6 are sold this month  = 15

Number remaining to be sold = 18-15 = 3 houses

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