# Ratio

6 numbers are in the ratio 1:5:1:5:5:5. Their sum is 242. What are the numbers?

Result

a =  11
b =  55
c =  11
d =  55
e =  55
f =  55

#### Solution:

$a = \dfrac{ 1 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 11$
$b = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55$
$c = \dfrac{ 1 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 11$
$d = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55$
$e = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55$
$f = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
