Answer

$\frac{7}{30}n$

Work Step by Step

We first apply the distributive property. Then, we simplify the resultant expression: $\frac{2}{5}n-\frac{7}{10}n+\frac{8}{15}n$ =$n(\frac{2}{5}-\frac{7}{10}+\frac{8}{15})$ =$n(\frac{2(6)-7(3)+8(2)}{30})$ =$n(\frac{12-21+16}{30})$ =$n(\frac{-9+16}{30})$ =$n(\frac{7}{30})$ =$\frac{7}{30}n$
