Question 1:
The number of girls and boys studying in a class are 25 and 20 respectively.
- Calculate the ratio of number of girls to that of boys?
- Calculate the ratio of number of girls to that of the total students in the class?
Solution:
Given;
No. of girls = 25
No. of boys = 20
Total number of students studying the class = 25 + 20 = 45
- Ratio of no. of girls to boys = \(\frac{25}{20}\) = \(\frac{5}{4}\)
- Ratio of girls to total students in the class = \(\frac{25}{45}\) = \(\frac{5}{9}\)
Question 2:
The strength of a class is 40, in which 8 students play football, while 14 others play cricket and all those left over play tennis.
- What is the ratio of the students playing football to the students playing tennis?
- What is the ratio of the students playing cricket to the strength of the class?
Solution:
Students playing football = 8 students
Students playing cricket = 14 students
Students playing tennis = 40 – (14 + 8) = 18
- ratio of the students playing football to the students playing tennis = \(\frac{8}{18}\) = \(\frac{4}{9}\)
- ratio of the students playing cricket to the strength of the class = \(\frac{14}{40}\) = \(\frac{7}{20}\)
Question 3:
Observe the following figure and answer the below questions
i) Calculate the ratio of triangles to the circles within the rectangle?
ii) Calculate the ratio of squares to the figures of all shapes within the rectangle?
iii) Calculate the ratio of circles to the figures of all shapes within the rectangle?
Solution:
No. of triangles within the rectangle = 4
No. of circles within the rectangle = 3
No. of squares within the rectangle = 1
Total figures = 8
i) Ratio of triangles to the circles = \(\frac{4}{3}\)
ii) Ratio of squares to all figures = \(\frac{1}{8}\)
iii) Ratio of circles to all figures = \(\frac{3}{8}\)
Question 4:
Kedhar and Rishab cover a distance of 10 km and 15 km respectively. What is the ratio of Kedhar’s speed to that of Rishab?
Solution:
Distance covered by kedhar in one hour = 10 km
Distance covered by Rishab in one hour = 15 km
Speed of Kedhar = 10 km/h
Speed of Rishab = 15km/h
Ratio of Kedhar’s speed to that of Rishab’s = \(\frac{10}{15}\)= \(\frac{2}{3}\)
Questsion 5:
Fill in the following boxes
\(\frac{18}{21}\) = \(\frac{ \sqcap }{7}\) = \(\frac{12}{ \sqcap }\) = \(\frac{ \sqcap }{35}\)
And tell if these ratios are equivalent.
Solution:
\(\frac{18}{21}\) = \(\frac{18\div 3}{21\div 3}\) = \(\frac{6}{7}\)
\(\frac{6}{7}\) = \(\frac{6\times 2}{7\times 2}\) = \(\frac{12}{14}\)
\(\frac{6}{7}\) = \(\frac{6\times 5}{7\times 5}\) = \(\frac{30}{35}\)
Thus, 6, 14, 30 are the numbers that are to be filled in three boxes respectively.
Yes, these ratios are equivalent.
Questsion 6:

(i) 81 to 108 (ii) 98 to 63
(iii) 33 to 121 (iv) 30 to 45
Solution:
(i) \(\frac{81}{108}=\frac{3\times 3\times 3\times 3}{2\times 2\times 3\times 3\times 3}=\frac{3}{4}\)
(ii) \(\frac{98}{63}=\frac{14\times 7}{9\times 7}=\frac{14}{9}\)
(iii) \(\frac{33}{121}=\frac{3\times 11}{11\times 11}=\frac{3}{11}\)
(iv) \(\frac{30}{45}=\frac{2\times 3\times 5}{3\times 3\times 5}=\frac{2}{3}\)
Questsion 7:
Fathima’s salary is Rs. 2,00,000 per annum and out of which she saves 75,000.
i) Calculate the ratio of Seema’s earnings to her savings
ii) Calculate the ratio of Seema’s savings to her expenditure
Solution:
Income = Rs 2,00,000
Savings = Rs 75,000
Expenditure = Rs 1,25,000
i) Ratio of Seema’s earnings to her savings = \(\frac{2,00,000}{75,000}\) = \(\frac{8}{3}\)
ii) ratio of Seema’s savings to her expenditure =\(\frac{75,000}{1,25,000}\) = \(\frac{3}{5}\)
Questsion 8:
3852 pupil studies in a school which has 154 teachers. Calculate the ratio of teachers to the students?
Solution:
Ratio of teachers to students = \(\frac{154}{3850}\) = \(\frac{2\times 11\times 7}{2\times 11\times 175 }\) = \(\frac{7}{175}\)
Questsion 9:
There are 5852 students in a school, out of which 3800 are girls. Calculate the ratio of
i) Girls to total students in school
ii) Boys to girls in school
iii) Boys to total students in school
Solution:
Number of students in school = 5852
Girls in school = 3800
Boys in school = 5852 – 3800 = 2052
i) Required ratio = \(\frac{3800}{5852}\) = \(\frac{1900}{2926}\) = \(\frac{100}{154}\) = \(\frac{50}{77}\)
ii) Required ratio = \(\frac{2052}{3800}\) = \(\frac{1026}{1900}\) = \(\frac{513}{950}\) = \(\frac{27}{50}\)
iii) Required ratio = \(\frac{2052}{5852}\) = \(\frac{27}{77}\)
Questsion 10:
Calculate the ratio for the given
i) 30 seconds to 1.5 minutes ii) 40 cg to 1.5 g
iii) 55 paise to 1 rupee iv) 500 mm to 2 m
Solution:
i) 1.5 minutes = 90 seconds
∴ Required ratio = \(\frac{30}{90}\) = \(\frac{1}{3}\)
ii) 1.5 gram = 150 gram
∴ Required ratio = \(\frac{40}{150}\) = \(\frac{4}{15}\)
iii) 1 rupee = 100 paise
∴ Required ratio = \(\frac{55}{100}\) = \(\frac{11}{20}\)
iv) 2 m = 2000 mm
∴ Required ratio = \(\frac{500}{2000}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Questsion 12:
The price of a dozen pens is 216 and the price of 8 pencils is 64. Calculate the ratio of the price of a pen to the price of a pencil?
Solution:
Dozen pens cost 216. Therefore, cost of one pen = \(\frac{216}{12}\) = 18
8 pencils cost 64. Therefore, cost of one pencil = \(\frac{64}{8}\) = 8
Ratio of the price of a pen to the price of a pencil = \(\frac{18}{8}\) = \(\frac{9}{4}\)
∴ Required ratio =\(\frac{9}{4}\)
Questsion 13:
The length and breadth of a box are in a ratio of 6:3. Fill in the emply blanks and find the possible lengths and breadths of the box?
Length of the box | 30 | 60 | |
Breadth of the box | 15 | 60 |
Solution:
Ratio of length to breadth = 6:3 = \(\frac{6}{3}\)
Therefore, their equivalent ratios are =
\(\frac{6}{3}\, \times \, \frac{10}{10}\, =\, \frac{60}{30}\) \(\frac{6}{3}\, \times \, \frac{20}{20}\, =\, \frac{120}{60}\)Length of the box | 30 | 60 | 120 |
Breadth of the box | 15 | 30 | 60 |
Questsion 14:
How can 20 pens be divided between Sujay and Ram the ratio of 4:1?
Solution:
Ratio between Sujay and ram = 4:1
Total value = 4+1 = 5
Therefore, Sujay’s part of total pencils = \(\frac{4}{5}\)
Ram’s part of total pencils = \(\frac{1}{5}\)
Thus, Pencils with Sujay = \(\frac{4}{5}\) \(\times\) 20 = 16 pencils
Pencils with Ram = \(\frac{1}{5}\) \(\times\) 20 = 4 pencils
Questsion 15:
Sneha and Radhika decide to divide 35 candies between them in the ratio of their ages. If Sneha and Radhika are 16 and 12 years old respectively, find how many candies Sneha and Radhika get.
Solution:
Ratio of Sneha’s age to Radhika’s age = \(\frac{16}{12}\) = \(\frac{4}{3}\)
Total value = 4+3 = 7
Candies received by Sneha = \(\frac{4}{7}\) * 35 = 20
Candies received by Radhika = \(\frac{3}{7}\) * 35 = 15
