    2.6 meter of fencing is left

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Thomas has 7 1/5 meters of fencing

    He used 4 3/5 meters of fencing to surround his yard

    To find:  fencing does he have left

    From given,

    Total\ length\ of\ fencing = 7\frac{1}{5} = \frac{36}{5}\ meters

    Used\ fencing = 4\frac{3}{5} = \frac{23}{5}\ meter

    Therefore,

    Fencing\ left = total\ length\ of\ fencing - used\ fencing\\\\Fencing\ left = \frac{36}{5} - \frac{23}{5}\\\\Fencing\ left = \frac{13}{5} = 2.6\ meter

    Thus, 2.6 meter of fencing is left
