1
Divide 80 hours in the ratio 2:6
20 : 60
Solution
2:6 means the first quantity is 2 parts and the second quantity in 6 parts.
The total number of parts = 2 + 6 = 8
8parts = 80
∴ 1 part =
808
= 10
∴ 2 parts = 10 x 2 = 20
and 6 parts = 10 x 6 = 60
2
In a city of 384090 people, the ratio of men to women is 3 : 7. Find the number of men and women?
Number of men in the city = 115227
Number of women in the city = 268863
Solution
Number of people in the city = 384090
Ratio of men to women = 3 : 7
The total number of parts = 3 + 7 = 10
10parts = 384090
∴ 1 part =
38409010
= 38409
∴ Number of men in the city = 38409 x 3 = 115227
and Number of women in the city = 38409 x 7 = 268863
3
The ratio between length and breadth of a rectangle is 5:6. If the breadth is 534 inch, find the length?
Length = 445 inch
Solution
Breadth of the rectangle = 534 inch
The ratio of length to breadth is 5:6
6 parts = 534 inch
∴ 1 part =
5346
= 89
Length = 5 parts
5 parts = 5 x 89 = 445
∴ Length of the rectangle = 445 inch.
4
If \$3283 is divided between Kevin and Jonathan in 3:4 ratio, who will get more and how much more?
Kevin get \$1407
Jonathan get \$1876

Jonathan get \$469 more than Kevin
Solution
Total Money = \$3283
Ratio of Kevin and Jonathan = 3 : 4
The total number of parts = 3 + 4 = 7
7 parts = 3283
∴ 1 part =
32837
= 469
Kevin's amount = 469 x 3 = \$1407
Jonathan's amount = 469 x 4 = \$1876
Jonathan get 1876
5
The ratio of expenditure and savings in a family is 4:9. If the expenditure is \$2296. What is the savings?
Savings = \$5166
Solution
The ratio of expenditure and savings is 4:9
Expenditure of the family = \$2296
Expenditure = 4 part
4 parts = \$2296
∴ 1 part =
22964
= 574
Savings = 9 parts
9 parts = 9 x 574 = 5166
∴ Savings of the family = \$5166
6
Divide \$994 in the ratio 5:9
\$355 : \$639
Solution
5:9 means the first quantity is 5 parts and the second quantity in 9 parts.
The total number of parts = 5 + 9 = 14
14 parts = \$994
∴ 1 part =
99414
= 71
∴ 5 parts = 71 x 5 = \$355
and 9 parts = 71 x 9 = \$639
7
Iva and Sophia decides to share the price money of competition in 2:3 ratio respectively. If they receive \$4575 together. Find the share of each
Iva get \$1830
Sophia get \$2745
Solution
Total price money = \$4575
Ratio of Iva and Sophia = 2 : 3
The total number of parts = 2 + 3 = 5
5 parts = 4575
∴ 1 part =
45755
= 915
∴ Iva's price money = 915 x 2 = \$1830
and Sophia's price money = 915 x 3 = \$2745
8
The ratio between length and breadth of a rectangle is 4:2. If the breadth is 40 inch, find the length?
Length = 80 inch
Solution
Breadth of the rectangle = 40 inch
The ratio of length to breadth is 4:2
2 parts = 40 inch
∴ 1 part =
402
= 20
Length = 4 parts
4 parts = 4 x 20 = 80
∴ Length of the rectangle = 80 inch.
9
The ratio of expenditure and savings in a family is 6:8. If the expenditure is \$2904. What is the savings?
Savings = \$3872
Solution
The ratio of expenditure and savings is 6:8
Expenditure of the family = \$2904
Expenditure = 6 part
6 parts = \$2904
∴ 1 part =
29046
= 484
Savings = 8 parts
8 parts = 8 x 484 = 3872
∴ Savings of the family = \$3872
10
In a city of 474621 people, the ratio of men to women is 3 : 4. Find the number of men and women?
Number of men in the city = 203409
Number of women in the city = 271212
Solution
Number of people in the city = 474621
Ratio of men to women = 3 : 4
The total number of parts = 3 + 4 = 7
7parts = 474621
∴ 1 part =
4746217
= 67803
∴ Number of men in the city = 67803 x 3 = 203409
and Number of women in the city = 67803 x 4 = 271212
