Using my knowledge of fractions, I know that there are 15 peaches left because 60 divided by 4 is 15.

15 peaches left…
4 x 15= 60
2 x 15 = 30
3 x 15 = 45

A half of 60 = 30
A quarter of 60 = 45
A 1 forth of 60 = 15

Bronze:
He had 15 left as I know mentally that 60 divided by 4 equals 15 so 1/4 equals 15 so 3/4 equals 45 and 60 takeaway 45 equals 15. So there are 15 peaches left.

Silver:
He has 31 peaches left because 1/3 of 75 is 25 and 25 takeaway 10 equals 15 then he gave another 25 away and ate 4 so 15 add 25 equals 40 and 40 add 4 equals 44 and finally 75 takeaway 44 equals 31.
