Q. 7. The boys and the girls in a school are in
the ratio 9 : 5. If the total strength of the
school is 448, find the number of girls.
Sol. Let the number of boys and girls in the

Q.9. Divide Rs. 3450 among A, B and C in
the ratio 3 : 5 : 7.
Sol. Total amount = Rs. 3450
Ratio in A, B and C shares = 3 : 5 : 7
Sum of share = 3 + 5 + 7 = 15
A’s share = Rs.
15
3 3450
= Rs. 230 × 3 = Rs. 690
B’s share = Rs.
