(c) 3 3/4 :  6 2/3

=  15 /4 :  20/3

=  15/4 × 12 :  20/3 × 12

=  45 :  80

=  9 : 16

(d) 4 1/4 :  2 1/3

= 17/4 :  7/3

= 17/4 × 12 : 7/3 × 12

= 51 : 28

Question no – (6)

Solution :

(a) Girls : Children’s

=   15 :  25

= 3 : 5

Girls to Children’s = 3 : 5

(b) Children : Boys

=  25 : 10

=  5 : 2

Children to Boys = 5 :  2

(c) Boys : Girls

= 10 : 15

=  2 : 3

Boys to Girls = 2 : 3

Question no –  (7)

Solution :

The number of blue mugs,

=  (30 × 2/3)

=  20

Therefore, there are 20 blue mugs.

Question no –  (8)

Solution :

The number of science book,

=  (40 × 3/5)

= 24 books,

Therefore, there are total 24 science book.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

= (24 × 1/5)

= 4 : 24

= 1 : 6

Therefore, total 6 adults are there.

Ratio and Proportion Exercise 6.2 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) 5, 10, 16, 8

Product of extremes,

=  (5 × 8)

=  40

Product of Means,

=  (10 × 16)

=  160

No, it is not in proportion.

(b) 16, 18, 8, 9

Product of extreme,

=  (16 × 9)

=  144

Product of means,

=  (18 × 8)

=  144

Yes, it is in Proportion.

(c) 24, 30, 10, 15

Product of extremes,

=  (15 × 24)

=  360

Product of means,

=  (30 × 10)

=  300

No, it is not in proportion.

(d) 7, 8, 28, 32

Product of extremes,

=  (7 × 32)

=  224

Product of means,

= (8 × 28)

= 224

Yes, it is in proportion.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) 9 : 12 = 36 : 48

(b) 18 : 25 = 90 : 125

(c) 3 : 9 = 9 : 27

(d) 5 1/2 :  2 3/4 = 10 1/2 :  5 1/4

= 11/2 : 11/4 : 21/2 :  21/4

Question no – (3)

Solution :

P : Q = 6 : 5 : 5

Q : R = 4 : 4 : 1
——————————-
P : Q : R = 24 : 20 : 5

Question no – (4)

Solution :

X : Y = 5 : 4 : 4

Y : Z = 3 : 3  : 4
———————————-
X : Y : Z = 15  : 12 : 16

Now,

X = (10750 × 15/43)

X = 3750 Rs.

Y = (10750 × 12/43)

Y = 3000 Rs.

Z = (10750 × 16/43

Z = 4000 Rs.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(a) 11 : x : : 4 :  8

= 11/x = 4/8

= x = 8 × 11/4

x = 22

(b) 5 : 12 : : 10 : x

=  5/12 = 10/x

=  x = 12 × 10/5

x = 24

(c) 7 : 5 : : 14 : x

=  7/5 =  14/x

= x = 5 × 14/7

x = 10

(d) 12 : 21 : : x : 35

= 12/21 = x/35

= x = 35 × 12/21

x = 20

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Fourth proportional of 3, 8 and 12

= 3 : 8 : : 12 : x

=  3/8 = 12/x

=  x =  8 × 12/3

x = 32

Hence, the fourth proportional of 3, 8 and 12 will be 32.

Ratio and Proportion Exercise 6.3 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

Out put of per worker,

=  1/5

=  3

Therefore, the out put of per worker will be 3 things per day.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Distance cover in 1 hour,

= 80/4

= 20 km

Therefore, the car will cover 20 km in 1 hour.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Each member contribute,

= 60,000/6

=  10,000

Thus, each member will contribute 10,000 towards family.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Rotation in second,

= 3720/60

= 62

So, motor will make 62 rotation in a second.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

25 kg pack cost,

=  700 R.

1 kg pack will cost,

= 700/25

15 kg pack will cost,

= 700 × 15/25

=  420 Rs.

Therefore, 15 kg pack will cost 420 rupees.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

In 20 hours need 12 farmers,

1 hour need 12 × 20

15 hours will need,

= 12 × 20/15

= 16 farmers.

Therefore, 16 farmers will be required.
