In a class A of 25 students, 20 passed in first class; in another class B of 30 students, 24 passed in first class. In which class was a greater fraction of students getting first class?

Solution:
Fraction of students getting first class in class A $=\frac { 20 }{ 25 } =\frac { 20\div 5 }{ 25\div 5 } =\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$
Fraction of students getting first class in class B $=\frac { 24 }{ 30 } =\frac { 24\div 6 }{ 30\div 6 } =\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$
Clearly, an equal number of students got 1st class in both the classes.
