Dear Student

Total number of pencils Ramesh had = 20 Number of pencils used by Ramesh = 10
∴Fraction = 10 / 20 = 1 / 2
Total number of pencils Sheelu had = 50 Number of pencils used by Sheelu = 25
∴Fraction = 25 / 50 = 1 / 2
Total number of pencils Jamaal had = 80 Number of pencils used by Jamaal = 40
∴Fraction = 40 / 80 = 1 / 2
Yes, each has used up an equal fraction of pencils i.e 1 / 2

Thanks
