## Answer:

3/10

## Step-by-step explanation:

Let Rohit’s pocket money be x.

First he spent 2/5 of his pocket money so he has [tex]x-\frac{2x}{5}[/tex] left with him.

Second he spends 1/6 on a newspaper assuming that this is a fraction of the original pocket money he has [tex]x-\frac{2x}{5}-\frac{x}{6}[/tex] left with him.

Finally he spends 2/15 on recreation so he has a total of [tex]x-\frac{2x}{5} -\frac{x}{6} -\frac{2x}{15}[/tex] left with him.

Simplyfying we get [tex]\frac{3x}{10}[/tex] thus we can say the fraction is 3/10
