Answer to Question #5772 in Algebra for Nidhi Fatak
Let's denote L one part and m another one. Then
s/L = 2/3
L+s = 50 ==> s = 50-L
(50-L)/L = 2/3
50/L - 1 = 2/3
50/L = 5/3
L/10 = 3
L = 30
s = 50-30 = 20.
So, the large part is 30 and the small part is 20.

If the parts are equal, there is no larger part.
If the number 50 is divided into 2 equal parts, each part would be 25 and there would be no larger or smaller part.
