Rani ate 2/7 part of a cake while her brother Ravi ate 4/5 of the remaining. Part of the cake left is 1/7.

Now, let us assume total part of cake be 1.

Then, from the questions, given that Rani ate 2/7 part of a cake = 1 – (2/7)

= (7 – 2)/7

= 5/7

So, Ravi ate 4/5 of the remaining cake = (4/5) × (5/7)

= 4/7

Therefore, the part of the cake left = (5/7) – (4/7)

= 1/7
