    Answer:

    21 articles of clothing are clean.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If 2/5 clothes, or 40% of them, are dirty, then 3/5, or 60% of them are clean.

    Multiply 35 by 0.60, and you get your answer.

    35 x 0.60 = 21.

    We can check this answer by multiplying 0.40 by 35 to get the amount of dirty clothes and adding that amount to 21, which should equal 35.

    35 x 0.40 = 14

    14 + 21 = 35
