A family spends 1/10 of its annual income for housing, 1/4 for food and clothing, 1/5 for general expenses, and 2/15 for entertainment. The fractional part of their income that is spent on these items altogether is 41/60.

1/10+1/4+1/5+2/15

=6/60+15/60+12/60+8/60

=41/60

1/10+1/4+1/5+2/15

=6/60+15/60+12/60+8/60

=41/60
