Q. 15. Mother wants to divide between her daughters Shreya and Bhoomika in the ratio of their ages. If age of Shreya is years and age of Bhoomika is years, find how much Shreya and Bhoomika will get.
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
amount of money Shreya gets:
Amount of money Sangeeta gets :
Hence Shreya and Sangeeta get 20 Rs and 16 Rs respectively.
