Question 2: Out of 30 students in a class, 6 like football, 12 like cricket and remaining like tennis. Find the ratio of
(a) Number of students liking football to number of students liking tennis.
(b) Number of students liking cricket to total number of students.
Answer 2:
Total number of students = 30
Number of students who like football = 6
Number of students who like cricket = 12
Thus number of students who like tennis = 30 – 6 – 12 = 12
(a) The ratio of students liking football that of tennis = 6/12 = 1/2 = 1:2
(b) The ratio of students like cricket to that of total students = 12/30 = 2/5 = 2.5

Question 7: Find the ratio of the following:
(a) 30 minutes to 1.5 hours
(b) 40 cm to 1.5 m
(c) 55 paise to Re 1
(d) 500 mL to 2 litres
Answer 7:
(a) 30 minutes to 1.5 hour
1.5 hours = 1.5 x 60 = 90 minutes [∵ 1 hour = 60 minutes]
Now, ratio of 30 minutes to 1.5 hour = 30 minutes: 1.5 hour
⇒ 30 minutes: 90 minutes
(b) 40 cm to 1.5 m
1.5 m = 1.5 x 100 cm = 150 cm [∵ 1 m = 100 cm]
Now. ratio of 40 cm to 1.5 m = 40 cm : 1.5 m
(c) 55 paise to Re. 1
Rs 1 = 100 paise
Now, ratio of 55 paise to Rs1 = 55 paise : 100 paise
(d) 500 ml to 2 litters
2 litres = 2 x 1000 ml = 2000 ml [∵1 litre = 1000 ml]
Now, ratio of 500 ml to 2 litres = 500 m l : 2 litres
Question 8: In a year, Seema earns Rs 1, 50, 000 and saves Rs 50, 000. Find the ratio of
(a) Money that Seema earns to the money she saves.
(b) Money that she saves to the money she spends.
Answer 8:
Total earning = Rs 1,50,000 and Saving = Rs 50,000
∵ Money spent = Rs 1,50,000  Rs 50,000 = Rs 1,00,000
(a) Ratio of money earned to money saved
(b) Ratio of money saved to money spend =
Question 9: There are 102 teachers in a school of 3300 students. Find the ratio of the number of teachers to the number of students.

Question 10: In a college, out of 4320 students, 2300 are girls. Find the ratio of
(a) Number of girls to the total number of students.
(b) Number of boys to the number of girls.
(c) Number of boys to the total number of students.
Answer 10:
Total number of students in school = 4320
Number of girls = 2300
Therefore, number of boys = 4320  2300 = 2020
(a) Ratio of girls to total number of students
(b) Ratio of boys to that of girls
(c) Ratio of boys to total number of students
Question 11: Out of 1800 students in a school, 750 opted basketball, 800 opted cricket and remaining opted table tennis. If a student can opt only one game, find the ratio of
(a) Number of students who opted basketball to the number of students who opted table tennis.
(b) Number of students who opted cricket to the number of students opting basketball.
(c) Number of students who opted basketball to the total number of students.
Answer 11:
Total number of students = 1800
Number of students opted basketball = 750
Number of students opted cricket = 800
Therefore, number of students opted tennis = 1800  (750 + 800) = 250
(a) Ratio of students opted basketball to that of opted table tennis
(b) Ratio of students opted cricket to students opted basketball
(c) Ratio of students opted basketball to total no. of students
Question 12: Cost of a dozen pens is Rs 180 and cost of 8 ball pens is Rs 56. Find the ratio of the cost of a pen to the cost of a ball pen.
Answer 12:
Cost of a dozen pens (12 pens) = Rs 180
∴ Cost of l pen = 180/2 = Rs 15
Cost of 8 ball pens = Rs 56
∴ Cost of l ball pen = 56/8 = Rs 7
Ratio of cost of one pen to that of one ball pen = 15/7 = 15 : 7
Question 13: Consider the statement: Ratio of breadth and length of a hall is 2 : 5. Complete the following table that shows some possible breadths and lengths of the hall.
Breadth of the hall (in metres)  10  ?  40 
Length of the hall (in metres)  25  50  ? 
Answer 13:
Ratio of breadth to length = 2 : 5 = 2/5
∴ Other equivalent ratios are
Thus,
Breadth of the hall (in meters)  10  20  40 
Length of the hall (in meters)  25  50  100 
Question 14: Divide 20 pens between Sheela and Sangeeta in the ratio of 3:2.
Answer 14:
