1. ## word ratio question

this is my queston:
374 divided in ratio of 1:2. The second person shared his section between two people in ratio of 2:3. How much did each person get?

for the first bit i have to do, 374 divided 3= 124.7 (i think) 124.7+124.7= 249.3.

well , let me make a guess here .

The person who got the 2 parts (249.3) shared with another person in the ratio of 2:3

Use the same method you used to solve the first part of the question ,

249.3 divide by 5 , then times 2 and 3 respectively to get the amount each person gets .

so would the answer be: 124.7:249.3, 99.72:149.58?
