does anyone know how to do this?
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.
after that part im not sure what to do, could someone please explain! thanks
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 .
