For three runners (on the first to third place) is prepared 30 chocolate that they be distributed in the ratio of 3 : 2 : 1

How much chocolate will get everyone?

Result

a =  15
b =  10
c =  5

Solution:

a=30 3/(3+2+1)=15a=30 \cdot \ 3/(3+2+1) = 15
b=30 2/(3+2+1)=10b=30 \cdot \ 2/(3+2+1) = 10
c=30 1/(3+2+1)=5c=30 \cdot \ 1/(3+2+1) = 5
