    Answer:

    a) 1/2 of 1/5 of 15 = 2 m^2

    b)2/15

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the total area of playground be 15 m^2

    [because 15 is multiple of 3 and 5 both].

    therefore,area playground is designed for young children = 1/3 of 15 = 5 m^2

    area of the play structure= 2/5 of 5=  2m^2

    or = 1/2 of 1/5 of 15 = 2 m^2

    b)  fraction of the total playground is the play structure = area of play structrure/ area of total ground.

    = 2/15
