Dear Student

From the question it is given that,
Number of students in a class = 40 students
1/5 of the total number of students like to eat rice only = 1/5 × 40

=1 × 8

8 students
2/5 of the total number of students like to eat chapati only = 2/5 × 40
=2 × 8
= 16 students

Then,
Number of students like to eat both = 40–(8 + 16)
= 40–24
= 16 students
Fraction of the total number of students like to eat both = 16/40
= 2/5

Thanks
