Ratio of division:
- The ratio in which the money is divided between James and Radha is 1:2.

Calculation:
- To find out how much money Radha received, we need to first calculate the total parts in the ratio, which is 1+2=3 parts.
- Next, we divide the total amount (RS. 87) by the total parts (3) to find the value of one part.
- RS. 87 ÷ 3 = RS. 29 (value of one part)
- Since Radha's share is 2 parts, we multiply the value of one part by 2 to find out how much money Radha received.
- RS. 29 x 2 = RS. 58

Therefore, Radha received RS. 58 out of the total RS. 87 when the money was divided between James and Radha in the ratio 1:2.
