    Let
    x————–> the complete figure 
    we know that
    the figure is divided into 6 equal parts
    x= (x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)
    red=(x/6)+(x/6)——–> red=(2x/6)=x/3
    blue=(x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)+(x/6)=(4x/6)=2x/3

    Rashad say that 2/4 of the figure is red——-> Rashad is wrong
    because (2/4) It is half of the figure

    the correct thing is to say (1/3) o the figure is red and (2/3) of the figure is blue
