Given :

Shubham painted \( \frac{2}{3} \) of the wall space in his room. His sister Madhavi helped and painted \( \frac{1}{3} \) of the wall space.

To do :

We have to find the wall space painted by them together. 

Solution :

Wall space painted by Shubham in his room $= \frac{2}{3}$

Wall space painted by Madhavi in the room $=\frac{1}{3}$

This implies, 

Total space painted by both of them together $= \frac{2}{3}+\frac{1}{3}$

$=\frac{2+1}{3}$

$=\frac{3}{3}$

$=1$

Therefore, Shubham and Madhavi together painted 1 complete wall in the room.
