Question

A father wants to divide ₹ 1800  among his sons in the ratio of their ages. Their ages are 12 years and 15 years. Find their respective share 


  1. Rs 500, Rs 700

  2. None of these

  3. Rs 300, Rs 600

  4. Rs 800, Rs 1000


Solution

The correct option is D

Rs 800, Rs 1000


The ratio of their age is 12:15 =  4:5.

          So, the money has to be divided in this ratio.
Let the shares be 4x and 5x respectively.
Now, 4x + 5x = 9x,
9x = 1800,

x = 200 

Hence their respective share will be 200(4) = ₹ 800

                                                         200 ( 5)  = ₹ 1000
