# Q. 14.     Divide $20$ pens between Sheela and Sangeeta in the ratio of  $3:2,$

P Pankaj Sanodiya

Given

Total number of pens = 20

The required ratio between Sheela and Sangeeta = 3 :

On adding the numbers in ratio we get 3 + 2 = 5.

So

Sheela will have 3/5 of the total pen :

$=\frac{3}{5}\times20=3\times4=12$

and Sangeeta will have 2/5 of the total pen:

$=\frac{2}{5}\times20=2\times4=8$

Hence Sheela will get 12 pens and Sangeeta will get 8 pens.
