Income spend on housing = 1/10 Income spend on food and clothing =1/4 Income spend for general expenses = 1/5 Income spend for entertainment = 2/15 Total part of income spent on these items= 1/10 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 2/15    = 6/60 + 15/60 + 12/60 + 8/60               ( LCM = 60 )    = 6+15+12+8/60    = 41/60 The part of income spend is 41/60
