A fraction of books in Asha’s shelf $=5/6$

A fraction of books in Samuel’s shelf $=2/5$

We compare the fractions to find whose shelf is more full.

LCM of $5$ & $6$ is $30$

$65 $

$=5×65×5 $

$=3025 $

$52 $

$=5×62×6 $

$=3012 $

$3025 >3012 $

$65 >52 $

So, Asha’s shelf has more books and is more full.

$65 −52 $

$=6×55×5 −5×62×6 $

$=3025 −3012 $

$=3013 $

Asha’s shelf is more full and by $=3013 $
