# Solutions for Ratio and Proportion Practice Problems - Set 2

Friends, here are the Solutions to our Ratio and Proportion Practice problems. Before checking these solutions, please read the practice problems from here and try to solve on your own. Happy Reading.

1.
Let the numbers be 4X and 7X

So, (4X - 4) / (7X - 4) = 2/5  =>  X = 2

So, First number is 4 x 2 = 8

2.
Third Portion = b2/a
here, a = 16 and b = 28

So, Third proportion = (28 x 28) / 16 = 49

3.
Mean (Second) proportion = √ab

here, a = 72, b = 32

So, Mean proportion = √(72 x 32) = 48

4.

 A B C 5 6 4 7

A : B : C = 5 x 4 : 4 x 6 : 6 : 7 = 10 : 12 : 21

5.
(A/B).(B/C).(C/D) = (7/8).(10/11).(4/5)

=> A / D = 7/11   =>  7:11

6.
Let the shares of A, B and C be 18X, 15X and 13X

15X = 4500 =>  X = 300

So, C share of money = 13 X

= 13 x 300 = Rs. 3900

Shortcut :
B's share is 15 parts, which is equal to Rs. 4500  then
C's share is (13/15) x 4500 = Rs. 3900

7.
Let the milk and water be 5X and 4X litres

5X / (4X + 9) = 4/5 => X = 4

So, Milk is 5X = 5 x 4 = 20 litres

8.
Let 2A = 3B = 4C = X

So, A = X/2,   B = X/3 and C = X/4

A : B : C = (1/2) : (1/3) : (1/4) = (6/12) : (4/12) : (3/12)

= 6 : 4 : 3

A's share is (6/13) x 5460 = Rs. 2520

9.
Ratio of the values of the coins

= (5/1) : (4/2) : (9/4) = 20 : 8 : 9

Value of 25 Paise coins = (9/37) x 74 = Rs. 18

So, Number of 25 Paise coins = 18 x 4 = 72

10.
Ratio of the number of Coins = 12 x 1 : 7 x 2 : 8 x 4  = 6 : 7 : 16

So, Number of 50 Paise Coins = (7/29) x 290 = 70
