The binary star has decreased in brightness by one magnitude. What part of the central star’s photosphere is closed

The binary star has decreased in brightness by one magnitude. What part of the central star’s photosphere is closed, if we assume that the eclipsing satellite does not give light?

The star’s brightness has decreased by 2.5 times; hence, 1 / 2.5 of the star’s photosphere is closed.
