Ratio and Proportion Methods shortcut tricks
Ratio and Proportion
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.
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.
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.
