# Q. 15.     Mother wants to divide $\inline Rs.36$ between her daughters Shreya and Bhoomika in the ratio of their ages. If age of Shreya is $\inline 15$ years and age of  Bhoomika is $\inline 12$ years, find how much Shreya and Bhoomika will get.

P Pankaj Sanodiya

Given,

Total money = Rs 36

Bhoomikas age = 12 years

Shreya's age = 15 years.

Now According to the question,

we are dividing 36 in ratio 15 : 12.

So, the sum of number in ratio = 15 + 12 = 27

Hence

amount of money Shreya gets:

$=\frac{15}{27}\times36$

$=\frac{15}{3}\times4$

$=5\times4$

$=20$ Rs .

Amount of money Sangeeta gets :

$=\frac{12}{27}\times36=\frac{12}{3}\times4=4\times4=16.$

Hence Shreya and Sangeeta get 20 Rs and 16 Rs respectively.
