Q: Divide £6705 in the ratio √2: √8
Its the sqaure root of 2 and 8 I dont get.
Thanks in advance.
$\displaystyle \sqrt{8}=\sqrt{4\times2}=\sqrt{4}\times\sqrt{2}=2\ sqrt{2}$
So the ratio can be re-expressed:
$\displaystyle \sqrt{2}:\sqrt{8}$
$\displaystyle =\sqrt{2}:2\sqrt{2}$
$\displaystyle =1:2$
So we need to £6705 into 3 portions...
£6705 into 3 is £2235 in each portion
So dividing £6705 into a ratio of 1:2 would mean:
£2235:£4470
