    Maya chatted online with all her friends for 2/3 of an hour on Saturday and 1/4 of an hour on sunday. During that time period, she chatted with paul for 1/8 of an hour. What fraction of the time maya spent chatting with her friends online was spent chatting with paul?

    Time spent with paul: 1/8 hTotal time spent chatting with friends: 2/3 h +1/4 h=11/12 hThe fraction of the time she spent with paul is (time spent with paul)/(total time spent chatting) hence the fraction spent with paul is (1/8)/(11/12)=3/11
