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

Answers (1)

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.
