Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn how to share money in a given 3 part ratio.

Example

Share £132 in the ratio 1:2:3 between three people.

 

Method

The first person will have 1 bag of money, the second two bags and the third 3 bags. Each bag holds an equal amount of money.

We need to work out how much money there is in each bag. 


Total number of bags = 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 bags.

Sum of money in each bag = £132 ÷ 6 = £22

 

Answer

First person gets       = 1 × £22 = £22

Second person gets  = 2 × £22 = £44

Third person gets      = 3 × £22 = £66

 

Check: Total = £22 + £44 + £66 = £132

Share £250 in the ratio 1:2:2 between three people.

First person gets       =  1 × £ _______  =  £ ______
