Fraction of year passed `= 2/5`

Therefore fraction of year left `= 1 -2/5`

                                          `= 3/5`


Day left             `= 365 xx 3/5`

                        `= 219`


There are 219 days left and it is 3/5 of the year.

146 days. You have to cross multiply and divide

x/365 and 2/5

multiply 2 by 365 and divide by 5
