## Ratio Example 2

Shortcut Tricks are very important things in competitive exam. Competitive exams are all about time. If you manage your time then you can do well in those exams. Most of us miss this thing. Here in this page we give few examples on Ratio shortcut tricks. All tricks on Ratio Example are provided here. We request all visitors to read all examples carefully. These examples here will help you to better understand shortcut tricks on ratio example.

Before doing anything we recommend you to do a math practice set. Write down twenty math problems related to this topic on a page. Do first ten maths using basic formula of this math topic. You also need to keep track of the time. After solving all ten math questions write down total time taken by you to solve those questions. Now go through our page for ratio shortcut trick. After this do remaining ten questions and apply shortcut formula on those math problems. Again keep track of timing. The timing will be surely improved this time. But this is not all you need. If you need to improve your timing more then you need to practice more.

### Things to Remember

We all know that the most important thing in competitive exams is Mathematics. That doesn’t mean that other topics are less important. You can get a good score only if you get a good score in math section. You can get good score only by practicing more and more. All you need to do is to do math problems correctly within time, and you can do this only by using shortcut tricks. Again it does not mean that you can’t do maths without using shortcut tricks. You may do math problems within time without using any shortcut tricks. You may have that potential. But other peoples may not do the same. For those we prepared this ratio shortcut tricks. Here in this page we try to put all types of shortcut tricks on Ratio. But if you see any tricks are missing from the list then please inform us. Your little help will help others.

Ratio
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 men are same in numbers as 1/4th of the women. What would be the ratio of men and women in that town?

1. 6 : 7
2. 5 : 4
3. 4 : 5
4. 4 : 6

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
20% men
( 20 / 100 ) Men <=> ( 1 / 4 ) Women
Men / 5 = Women / 4
Men / Women = 5 / 4
Men : Women = 5 : 4

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 in the school?

1. 24
2. 14
3. 26
4. 16

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
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
In a school ratio of boys and girls is 9 : 6 and if there present 180 boys, than find the total number of students in the school.

1. 300
2. 320
3. 280
4. 295

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, the number of boys and girls be 9x and 6x.
Then, 9x = 180
x = 20

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

1. Rs.2600/-
2. Rs.1400/-
3. Rs.1300/-
4. Rs.1900/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
( Related Ratio / Sum of Ratio ) x Total Amount
4 / 12 X 4200 = 1400

So, the Amount received by sanjay is 1400.

Example #5
Find the mean proportional between given two number that is 64 and 49.

1. 55
2. 56
3. 57
4. 49

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

So, the mean proportion 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?

1. Rs.149/-
2. Rs.145/-
3. Rs.155/-
4. Rs.160/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, Q gets Rs.X.
So, We can say that P gets ( X + 20 ) and R gets ( X + 35 ).

Now, Q + P + R = 385
X + ( X + 20 ) + ( X + 35 ) = 385
X + X + 20 + X + 35 = 385
3X = 385 – 20 – 35
3X = 330
X = 110

So, R’s share is ( 110 + 35 ) = Rs.145/-.

Example #7
Rs.1210/- were divided among three person P, Q, R in the ratio of P : Q = 5 : 4 and Q : R = 9 : 10. So, what amount will R gets?

1. Rs.460/-
2. Rs.420/-
3. Rs.300/-
4. Rs.400/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
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
So, R’s share amount is ( 1210 x 40 / 121 ) = Rs.400/-.

Example #8
Rs.64000/- are divided among three friends in the ratio of 3 / 5 : 2 / 1 : 5 / 3. What will be the share of the second friend?

1. Rs.32000/-
2. Rs.25000/-
3. Rs.30000/-
4. Rs.28000/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Here the given ratio is = 3 / 5 : 2 / 1 : 5 / 3 = 9 : 30 : 25

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

Example #9
Which of the following ratio is the greatest?
7 : 15, 15 : 23, 17 : 25, 21 : 29

1. 21 : 29
2. 17 : 25
3. 15 : 23
4. 7 : 15

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
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.

1. 4
2. 5
3. 6
4. 7

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Let, the number to be added is 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 5 : 3, what will be their shares?

1. Paul = Rs.520/- and John = Rs.312/-
2. Paul = Rs.312/- and John = Rs.520/-
3. Paul = Rs.512/- and John = Rs.320/-
4. Paul = Rs.320/- and John = Rs.512/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
The given ratio is = 5 : 3
Paul’s share will be ( 832 x 5 / 8 ) = Rs.520/-
John’s share will be ( 832 x 3 / 8 ) = Rs.312/-

So, their shares are Rs.520/- and Rs.312/-.

Example #12
A certain amount was divided between A and B in the ratio of 4 : 3. If B’s share was Rs.4800/-, what was the total amount?

1. Rs.11800/-
2. Rs.11200/-
3. Rs.10200/-
4. Rs.10800/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
If, B’s share is 3
And sum of ratio terms is = ( 4 + 3 ) = 7

Now, B’s share is 4800
then sum of share amount is = ( 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%, then find the new ratio of three friend salary?

1. 11X / 10 : 9X / 5 : 10X / 4
2. 11X / 5 : 36X / 5 : 10X / 4
3. 55X / 10 : 36X / 5 : 40X / 4
4. 55X / 5 : 36X / 10 : 40X / 8

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
We assume ratio as 5x, 6x and 8x
Now the increment of new salary of A is 10% = 110 / 100
B is 20% = 120 / 100
C is 25% = 125 / 100

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

So, the new ratio is 55X / 10 : 36X / 5 : 40X / 4.

1. amalesh says:

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….

2. chandu says:

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

• thank u chandu…

3. Rj says:

e.g no.1 how 8come

• sum of ratio terms 3 + 5 = 8

4. HAPPY says:

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

• akshya says:

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

5. tua says:

qs no 2 not understand

6. suji says:

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

7. Mee says:

Can we solved Que no 6 like this

P=120,Q=100,R=135
24:20:27
385*27/71
146

8. Vigneshwari Sekar says:

how to calculate ex.9 to easily tel some quick to find.
7/15=0.466

9. bryan says:

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
