A : B : C = 150 : 100 :  120 × 150
100

Required ratio = 5 ×  140  : 7 ×  150  : 8 ×  175
100 100 100

=  5 × 140 : 7 × 150 : 8 × 175  =  2 : 3 : 4

Hence, option A is correct.

48% of the first number is 60% of the second number. What is the ratio of the first number to the second number?

Let the first number be x and the second number be y

Then, 48% of x = 60% of y

or,   x  =  60%  =  5
y 48% 4

∴    Reqd ratio = 5 : 4.

Hence, option C is correct.

5
Shreya, Nikita and Kamini share the profit in the ratio of 7 : 8 : 9. They has partnered for 12 months, 9 months and 6 months respectively. What was the ratio of their investments?
» Explain it
A
Let the investment of Shreya be ₹ x,

that of Nikita be ₹ y and that of Kamini be ₹ z respectively.

Then, 12x : 9y : 6z = 7 : 8 : 9

or,    12x  =  7
9y 8

∴     32x = 21y

∴    21 y
32

And   9y  =  8
6z 9

∴    27y = 16z

∴    27 y
16

So, x : y : z =  21 : y  27 y  = 21 : 32 : 54
32 16

Hence, option A is correct.
