Of all the homes on Gotham Street, 1/3 are termite-ridden, and 3/5 of these are collapsing. What fraction of the homes are termite-ridden, but NOT collapsing?

A. 2/15
B. 3/15
C. 4/5
D. 2/5
E. 1/5


Given: 1/3 of the homes are termite-ridden
Given: 3/5 of the termite-ridden homes are collapsing.
So, 2/5 of the termite-ridden homes are NOT collapsing.

So, the the fraction of the homes are termite-ridden, but NOT collapsing = (1/3)(2/5)
= 2/15

Answer: A

Cheers,
Brent
