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
