Ratio of two sums of money is 4:3
if larger sum of money is increased by $40, the ratio becomes 2:1.
What are sums of money ?
How to solve this ?
Solution
(4/7)*x+(3/7)*y=4:3
cant understand it....
ratio of two sums = 4 : 3 = ........... (1)
When $40 is increased to the larger sum, the ratio is = .........(given)
=
=
=
=
By replacing the value of x in the first equation, we get $80 and $60.
So the sum of $80 and $60 = $140.
We had $140. Answer.
I think you have understood this. All the best
