Question 5 Time: 00:00:00

share of p :- (2/10)*5000=1000 share of q :- (3/10)*5000=1500 share of r :- (5/10)*5000=2500 after adding Rs. 500 to each the new amount of p:q:r will be 1500:2000:3000 so new ratio will be 3:4:6

2/10*5000=1000+500 3/10*5000=1500+500 5/10*5000=2500+500 1500:2000:3000=3:4:6

Total sum of money=5500 Divided among P,Q,R in ratio= 2:3:5 Share of P=(5000*2)/10=1000 Share of Q=(5000*3)/10=1500 Share of R=(5000*5)/10=2500 Now, RS. 500 is added to each then their share becomes: P=1500,Q=2000,R=3000 Their ratio= 1500:2000:3000 =3:4:6

Ratios sum : 2+3+5=10 1st (2/10)*100=1000+extra 500=1500 2nd (3/10)*100=1500+extra 500=2000 3rd (5/10)*100=2500+extra 500=3000 new ratios=1500:2000:3000=3:4:6

Define x: Let x be the constant ratio Ratio =  2x : 3x : 5x Solve x: 2x + 3x + 5x = 5000 10x = 5000 x = 500 Find the shares: 2x = 2(500) = 1000 3x = 3(500) = 1500 5x = 5(500) = 2500 Find the shares after increase: 2x + 500 = 1000 + 500 = 1500 3x + 500 = 1500 + 500 = 2000 5x + 500 = 2500 + 500 = 3000 Find their new ratio: Ratio = 1500 : 2000 : 3000 Simplify by dividing by 500 : Ratio = 3 : 4 : 6
