**Ratio Example 2**

Ratio based problem are very important for banking exams or ssc exams all type competitive exams, One or two problems are given in paper based exam or online exams. Here is some problems are given with solution including ratio shortcut tricks which are given in exams.

We elaborate one example here, some amount is given this amount are divide into persons and find the amount of one or two persons. Some examples are given to find the mean term of example 2. This type of problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential paper in banking exam. Under below given some more example for your better practice.

**Example 1:** In a town, 20% of the mans are same in numbers as 1 / 4th of the women. What would be the ratio of mans and woman in that town ?

**Answer :** 20% mans

20 man / 100 <=>1 / 4 womens

mans / womens = 4 / 5

mans : womens = 4 : 5

**Example 2:** In a school, the number of ratio of boys and girls is 4 : 9, after inclusion of 32 new girls, the ratio become 4 : 17. How many boys were present at starting in this school ?

**Answer :** 4x / 9x + 32 = 4 / 17

68x = 36x + 128

x = 4

So, the number of boys in the school is (4 x 4) = 16.

**Example 3:** Ina school ratio of number of boys and girls is 9 : 6 and if there present 180 boys, than find the total number of students in the school.

**Answer:** Let number of boys and girls 9x and 6x.

Then 9x = 180 = x = 20.

So, Total number of students is = 15x = (15 x 20) = 300.

**Example 4:**

Share Rs.4200 among joy, sanjay and bijoy in the ration 2 : 4 : 6.Find the amount received by sanjay.

**Answer :**

Amount received by sanjay.

4 / 12 X 4200 = 1400= ( related ratio / sum of ratio ) x Total amount

So, the Amount received by sanjay is 1400.

**Example 5:**

Find the mean proportional between given two number that is 64 and 49.

**Answer :**

The mean proportion of two numbers is

Root of 64 and 49 is √8 x √ 7 = 8 x 7 = 56.

So, the mean proportional is 56.

**Example 6:**

Rs. 385 were divided among P , Q , R in such a way that P had Rs 20 more than Q and R had Rs 15 more than P . How much was R’s share ?

**Answer :**

Let Q gets Rs x. Then We can say P gets Rs (x + 20 ) and R gets Rs ( x + 35).

x + 20 + x + x + 35 = 385

3x = 330

x = 110 .

R’s share = Rs ( 110 + 35 ) = Rs 145.

**Example 7:**

Rs 1210 were divided among three person P, Q, R so that P : Q = 5 : 4 and Q : R = 9 : 10. Then R gets the amount.

Answer :

P : Q = 5 : 4, Q : R = 9 : 10 = ( 9 x 4 / 9 ) : ( 10 x 4 / 9 ) = 4 : 40 / 9.

So, P : Q : R = 5 : 4 : 40 /9 = 45 : 36 : 40

Sum of ratio terms is = ( 45 + 36 + 40 ) =121.

R share of amount is Rs (1210 x 40 / 121) = Rs. 400 .

**Example 8:**

Rs 64000 are divided among three friends in the ratio 3 / 5 : 2 / 1 : 5 / 3 . The share of the second friend is :

**Answer :**

Here the given ratio is = 3 / 5 : 2 / 1 : 5 / 3 = 9 : 30 : 25 .

So the Share of the second friend = Rs ( 64000 x 30 / 64) = 30000.

**Example 9:**

Which of the following ratio is the greatest ?

7 : 15 , 15 : 23 , 17 : 25 , 21 : 29

**Answer :**

7 / 15 = 0.466

15 / 23 = 0.652

17 / 25 = 0.68

21 / 29 = 0.724

So, 0.724 is greatest and therefore, 21 : 29.

**Example 10:**

What number has to be added to each term of 3 : 5 to make the ratio 5 : 6 :

**Answer :**

Let the number to be added x , Then

3 + x / 5 + x = 5 / 6

6 ( 3 + x ) = 5 ( 5 + x )

x = ( 25 – 18 ) = 7

So , the number to be added is 7.

**Example 11:**

On dividing a sum of Rs 832 between Paul and john in the ratio 3 : 5 , their shares are

**Answer :**

So the given ratio is = 3 : 5

So , the 1st part = Rs ( 832 x 5 / 8 ) = Rs 520 , 2nd part = Rs ( 832 x 3 / 8 ) = Rs 312

So , their shares are : 312 and 520.

**Example 12:**

A certain amount was divided between A and B in the ratio 4 : 3 . If B’s share was Rs, 4800, the total amount was ?

**Answer :**

If B ‘s share is Rs, 3, total amount = Rs, 7

If B’s share is Rs, 4800, total amount = Rs, (7 / 3 x 4800) = 11200.

**Example 13:**

The Salary of Three friend A, B, C are divided into ratio 5 : 6 : 8. If the increment has given of 10%, 20%, 25%, Find the new ratio of three friend salary ?

**Answer :**

**Step 1:** We assume ration as 5x, 6x, 8x

now the increment of new salary of A is 10% = 110 / 100, B is 20% = 120 / 100, C is 25% = 125 / 100.

**Step 2:** A,s new salary is 110 x 5X / 100 = 55X / 10.

B,s new salary is 120 x 6X / 100 = 36X / 5.

C,s new salary is 125 x 8X / 100 = 10.

**Step 3:** New ratio is 55X / 10 : 36X / 5 : 40X / 4.

in the 4th sum mistake

rshare will be 1210*40/121=400

but in the sum

1210*36/121=400 given this step will be mistake. pls make it correct.

thank u amalesh….

example6 war wong . the correct ratio is 9:30:25

thank u chandu…

e.g no.1 how 8come

sum of ratio terms 3 + 5 = 8

In the 9th ex it is 11200 instead of 1120.

i can’t understand ration example 2 second sum how 110,120,125 came

10% = 110/100, 20% = 120 /100, 25% = 125/100 increment salary

qs no 2 not understand

In example 12 answer is correct but the step seems incorrect

3x=4800 therefore x=4800/3

total amount=4x+3x=7x=7*(4800/3)=7*1600=11200

Can we solved Que no 6 like this

P=120,Q=100,R=135

24:20:27

385*27/71

146

how to calculate ex.9 to easily tel some quick to find.

7/15=0.466

answer for example 1 is wrong it should be 4:5

let no. of men = 100 , no. of women = 100

now , 20% of 100 = 20 , 1/4 of 100 = 25

men:women = 20 / 25 ==> 4:5

Ex-6

x+20+x+x+35=385

3x=330

sir kindly explain it once again
