# In a class of 40 children, 16 of them wear glasses. What fraction of the children wear glasses?

## 16/40 = 2/5

## Its is 15/40

## 16/40 = 2/5

## 40 LEARNERS IN A CLASS 15%WEAR GLASSES. HOW MANY LEARNERS WEAR GLASSES

## To find the fraction of the children who wear glasses, we need to divide the number of children who wear glasses by the total number of children in the class.

To do this, we divide the number of children who wear glasses (16) by the total number of children in the class (40):

16/40

This fraction can be simplified by finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and the denominator, which is 8. Dividing both the numerator and the denominator by the GCD, we get:

16/40 = (16 ÷ 8)/(40 ÷ 8)

= 2/5

Therefore, the fraction of children who wear glasses is 2/5.
