## Ratio and Proportion Methods shortcut tricks

Ratio and Proportion shortcut tricks are very important thing to know for your exams. Time takes a huge part in competitive exams. If you manage your time then you can do well in those exams. Most of us miss this thing. Few examples on Ratio and Proportion shortcuts is given in this page below. All tricks on ratio and proportion are provided here. Visitors please read carefully all shortcut examples. These examples here will help you to better understand shortcut tricks on Ratio and Proportion Methods.

First of all do a practice set on math of any exam. Write down twenty math problems related to this topic on a page. Using basic math formula do first ten maths of that page. You also need to keep track of Timing. After solving all ten math questions write down total time taken by you to solve those questions. Now read our examples on ratio and proportion shortcut tricks and practice few questions. After doing this go back to the remaining ten questions and solve those using shortcut methods. Again keep track of Timing. This time you will surely see improvement in your timing. But this is not enough. You need more practice to improve your timing more.

### Few Important things to Remember

You all know that math portion is very much important in competitive exams. It doesn’t mean that other topics are not so important. But if you need a good score in exam then you have to score good in maths. Only practice and practice can give you a good score. All you need to do is to do math problems correctly within time, and this can be achieved only by using shortcut tricks. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t do math problems without using any shortcut tricks. You may have that potential to do maths within time without using any shortcut tricks. But so many other people may not do the same. For those we prepared this ratio and proportion shortcut tricks. We always try to put all shortcut methods of the given topic. But it possible we miss any. We appreciate if you share that with us. Your little help will help so many needy.

Now we will discuss some basic ideas of Ratio and Proportion. On the basis of these ideas we will learn trick and tips of shortcut ratio and proportion. If you think that how to solve ratio and proportion questions using ratio and proportion shortcut tricks, then further studies will help you to do so.

### What is Ratio?

A ratio is a relationship between two numbers by division of the same kind. The ration of a to b is written as a : b = a / b. In ratio a : b, we can say that a as the first term or antecedent and b the second term or consequent.

Example
The ratio 4 : 9 can be represented as 4 / 9. So, Antecedent = 4 and Consequent = 9.

### Rule of ratio

In ratio multiplication or division of each an every term of a ratio by the same non-zero number does not affect the ratio.

Different type of ratio problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential topic in banking exam. Under below given some more example for your better practice.

Anything we learn in our school days was basics and that is well enough for passing our school exams. Now the time has come to learn for our competitive exams. For this we need our basics but also we have to learn something new. That’s where shortcut tricks and formula are comes into action.

### What is Proportion?

The idea of proportions is that two ratios are like equal.

If a : b = c : d, then we can write a : b : : c : d
Here, a and d is called extremes AND b and c is called mean terms.

Example
3 / 15 = 1 / 5

### Proportion of Quantities

The four quantities like a, b, c, d are proportion, then we can express it as
a : b = c : d
Then, a : b : : c : d  <–> ( a x d ) = ( b x c )
Product of means = Product of extremes.

If there is given three quantities like a, d, c of same like, then we can say it’s proportion are continued.
a : d = d : c
Here d is called mean term AND a and c are called extremes.

### Different types of Number Series Method

So here we provide few tricks on Ratio and Proportion Methods. Please visit this page to get updates on more Math Shortcut Tricks. You can also like our facebook page to get updates.

I liek dis site

2. karthik says:

and 4th example also confusing..
please rectify my doubts..

• Admin says:

thank you for feedback, will try to rectify your doubts

• Sunil kumar says:

Hey karthik listen
actually there is 20 litres of mixture has been given ok
And now he said that 4litres of mixture is replaced by 4 litres of milk isnt it
So replacing means we have to subtract some quantity and we should add some other qauntity isnt it
So first he subtracted that 4 litres of muxture ok then remaining will be 16 litres ok
Then in that 16 litres first u should know how much quantity of milk is present bcoz if u know that quantity then after adding extra u can know total quantity of milk in 20 litres
So in 16 litres u will get 10 litres as milk
So for that 10 litres u can add new 4 litres of milk it will bcm 14.litres so in 20 rremaing 6 will be water so ratio of milk and water will be 14:6=7:3

Tq u
So much.

4. amitava dutta says:

IF a : b = 3 : 25 and b : c = 105 : 17 , then a : b : c = ??

• Admin says:

a : b = 3 : 25
b : c = 105 : 17

3 x 105 = 315
105 x 25 = 2625
25 x 17 = 425
a : b : c = 315 : 2625 : 425

• Imma says:

Can you please explain it again

• ameee says:

105(3:25):25(105:17)
105*3=315,105=2625:25*105=2625,105*17=1785
315:2625 2625:1785. So now2625 common take once
315:2625:1785

• p.saiteja says:

shortcut…….
a:b
b:c=ab:bb:bc
then
3:25
105:17
a:b:c=3*105:25*105:25*17=315:2625:425

• nawfal says:

then a:c=?

• rashmi says:

63:525:85

• karan Thakur says:

a:b:c = 63:505:87

• Deepika swami says:

a:b:c=63:525:85

5. prashik says:

thanx 4 help it’s cool

6. REVATHI says:

8. sukhdeep says:

in a garden the ratio of the number of coconuts trees to that of mango trees is 5:6 respectively if the total number of trees is 121 then how many cocount trees are there in the garden?

• Sunil kumar says:

Buddy 5 is not the no.of coconut trees its a ratio of coconut trees

• Animika says:

Coconut : 55
Mango :: 66

• Tariq Ahmad says:

Total = 121
Ratio = 5:6
Add ratio = 5+6=11
Coconuts trees = 5/11*121= 55
Mango trees = 6/11*121 =66

• Sunil kumar says:

55 coconut trees and 66 mango tress
Therefore total 121 trees
Explanation:
5/5+6*121=55
6/5+6*121=66

9. Arulvizhi says:

solve 8:65::11:?

10. KUNDAN MISHRA says:

11. akku says:

at present age father’s age is thrice than that of his son. 6 year back his age was four times than that of his son. what will be the ratio of their ages after 6 year

• sajid says:

as per my knowledge i am posting
let son present age x
father present age 3x
6yrs ago
6(x-6)=6x-36
father age 3x-6
so 6x-36=3x-6
x=10
present age 16
son 16 father 48
after 6 yrs 22:54
father :son 27:11

Very help full site.

23. Gagan Kumar Giri says:

Smitha and Geeta have marbels in the ratio 3:2 . Geeta and Reshma have marbels in the ratio 3:5 . If they have 250 marbelsall together,how many marbels does Smitha have? Sir plz give the ans.

• Saikat says:

smitha : geeta = 3:2

geeta : reshma = 3:5

therefore, smitha : geeta :reshma = 9:6:10

thus, smitha has 9x marbles
geeta has 6x marbles
& reshma has 10x marbles

smitha’s marbles = (9x/25x)*100
=36

Answer = 36 marbles,Smitha has

• shobhit varshney says:

i think answer is 90 not 36

• Sunil kumar says:

Yes its correct 90 is correct ans
