#### Exercise 11(C)

1. Rs 120 is to be divided between Hari and Gopi in the ratio 5: 3. How much does each get?

Solution:

Given

Total amount = Rs 120

Amount divided between Hari and Gopi in the ratio = 5: 3

Hence,

The sum of ratio is as follows:

Sum of ratio = 5 + 3

= 8

Hence, Hari’s and Gopi’s share will be as follows:

Hari’s share = (120 × 5) / 8

= Rs 75

Gopi’s share = (120 × 3) / 8

= Rs 45

Therefore, Hari get Rs 75 and Gopi get Rs 45

2. Divide 72 in the ratio Solution:

Given

Ratio = Number = 72

The above expression can be written as follows: = 5 / 2: 3 / 2

We get

= 5 / 2 × 2: 3 / 2 × 2

= 5: 3

Thus, the sum of ratios is as follows:

Sum of ratio = 5 + 3

= 8

First divide = 5 / 8 × 72

= 45

Second divide = 3 / 8 × 72

= 27

3. Divide 81 into three parts in the ratio 2: 3: 4

Solution:

Given

Number = 81

Ratio = 2: 3: 4

Hence, the sum of ratio is calculated as follows

Sum of ratios = 2 + 3 + 4

= 9

First divide = 2 / 9 × 81

= 18

Second divide = 3 / 9 × 81

= 27

Third divide = 4 / 9 × 81

= 36

Therefore, 81 can be divided into 18, 27 and 36 in the ratio 2: 3: 4

4. Divide Rs 10, 400 among A, B and C in the ratio 1/ 2: 1/ 3: 1/ 4

Solution:

Given

Amount = Rs 10400

Amount to be divided into ratio = 1/ 2: 1/ 3: 1/ 4

The L.C.M of 2, 3 and 4 is 12

Hence, given ratio will be as given below

1 / 2: 1 / 3: 1 / 4 = 1 / 2 × 12: 1 / 3 × 12: 1 / 4 × 12

= 6: 4: 3

A’s part = 6 / 13 × 10400

We get

= 6 × 800

= 4800

B’s part = 4 / 13 × 10400

We get

= 4 × 800

= 3200

C’s part = 3 / 13 × 10400

We get

= 3 × 800

= 2400

5. A profit of Rs 2, 500 is to be shared among three persons in the ratio 6: 9: 10. How much does each person get?

Solution:

Given

Total profit = Rs 2, 500

Ratio = 6: 9: 10

Sum of ratio = 6 + 9 + 10

= 25

Share of first person = 6 / 25 × 2500

= 6 × 100

= 600

Share of second person = 9 / 25 × 2500

= 9 × 100

= 900

Share of third person = 10 / 25 × 2500

= 10 × 100

= 1000

6. The angles of a triangle are in the ratio 3: 7: 8. Find the greatest and the smallest angles.

Solution:

Given

Ratio = 3: 7: 8

We know that

Sum of angles of a triangle = 1800

Sum of ratios = 3 + 7 + 8

= 18

Hence, the angles are calculated as

Smallest angle = 3 / 18 × 1800

= 3 × 10

= 300

Greatest angle = 8 / 18 × 1800

= 8 × 10

= 800

7. The sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3: 2: 4. If the perimeter of the triangle is 27 cm, find the length of each side.

Solution:

Given

Ratio of the sides of a triangle is 3: 2: 4

Sum of ratios = 3 + 2 + 4

= 9

Perimeter of a triangle = 27 cm

Length of first side = 27 / 9 × 3

= 3 × 3

= 9 cm

Length of second side = 27 / 9 × 2

= 3 × 2

= 6 cm

Length of third side = 27 / 9 × 4

= 3 × 4

= 12 cm

8. An alloy of zinc and copper weighs 12 ½ kg. If in the alloy, the ratio of zinc and copper is 1: 4, find the weight of copper in it.

Solution:

Given

Weight of an alloy = 12 ½ kg

= 25 / 2 kg

Ratio of zinc and copper = 1:4

Sum of ratios = 1 + 4

= 5

Hence, weight of copper will be as given below

Weight of copper = 4 / 5 × 25 / 2 kg

= 2 × 5

= 10 kg

Therefore, weight of copper in it is 10 kg

9. How will Rs 31500 be shared between A, B and C; if A gets the double of what B gets, and B gets the double of what C gets?

Solution:

Given

Amount = Rs 31500

Let the share of C = 1

Share of B = double of C

= 2 × 1

= 2

Share of A = double of B

= 2 × 2

= 4

Therefore, given ratio will be

A: B: C = 4: 2: 1

Sum of ratios = 4 + 2 + 1

= 7

A’s share = 4 / 7 × 31500

= 4 × 4500

= Rs 18000

B’s share = 2 / 7 × 31500

= 2 × 4500

= Rs 9000

C’s share = 1 / 7 × 31500

= 1 × 4500

= Rs 4500

10. Mr. Gupta divides Rs 81000 among his three children Ashok, Mohit and Geeta in such a way that Ashok gets four times what Mohit gets and Mohit gets 2.5 times what Geeta gets. Find the share of each of them.

Solution:

Given

Amount = Rs 81000

Let the share of Geeta = 1

Share of Mohit is 2.5 times of Geeta

Hence, share of Mohit becomes = 2.5

Share of Ashok is 4 times of Mohit

Hence, share of Ashok becomes = 4 × 2.5

= 10

Ratio = 1: 2.5: 10

= 1 × 2: 2.5 × 2: 10 × 2

= 2: 5: 20

Thus, sum of ratios = 2 + 5 + 20

= 27

Share of Geeta = 2 / 27 × 81000

= 2 × 3000

= Rs 6000

Share of Mohit = 5 / 27 × 81000

= 5 × 3000

= Rs 15000

Share of Ashok = 20 / 27 × 81000

= 20 × 3000

= Rs 60000
