# What should be subtracted from 5/14 so that the resultant fraction is 7/42?

(a) 1/21

(b) 2/21

(c) 4/21

(d) 5/21

**Answer: (c) 4/21**

**Solution:-**

Let X subtracted from 5/14.

Then,

5/14 – X = 7/42

– X = 7/42 – 5/14

X = 5/14 – 7/42

X = (15 – 7)/42

X = 8/42

X = 4/21

Then, 4/21 should be subtracted from 5/14 so that the resultant fraction is 7/42.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 4/21.
