**Ratio & Proportion**

→ Ratio of two Quantities is the number of times one quantity contains another quantity of same type.

→ The ratio between a and b can be represented as a : b, where

**a**is called**antecedent**and**b**is called**consequent**.
i.e a/b or a : b

**→ Different types of ratio are explained as below:-**

**(1) Duplicate Ratio :-**If the numbers given are in ratio, then the ratio of their squares is called duplicate ratio.

For ex. 2:3=4:9

**(2) Sub-Duplicate Ratio:-**If given two numbers are in ratio, then ratio of their square roots is called sub-duplicate ratio

For ex 25 : 36 = 5 : 6

**(3) Triplicate Ratio:-**If the given numbers are in ratio, then ratio of their cubes is called triplicate ratio

For ex- 4 : 5 = 64 : 125

**(4) Sub- triplicate Ratio:-**If the given numbers are in ratio, then ratio of their cube roots is called sub-triplicate ratio

For ex- 125 : 343 = 5 : 7

**(5) Inverse Ratio:-**If given numbers are in ratio then their antecedent and consequent are interchanged and the ratio obtained is called inverse ratio

*** Proportion:**– An equality of two ratios is called the proportion.

→ If L/M=x/y or L : M = x : y, then we can say that L, M, x, y are in proportion and can be written as L : M :: x : y

**Some important rules of proportion:-**

**Rule 1:-**If

**x : y :: y : z**, then z is called third proportional to

**x**and

**y**

x : y ∷ y : z ⇒ x : y = y : z

⇒ x × z = y × y

⇒ y² = xz

**Rule 2:-**If

**L : M :: x : y**, then y is called the 4th proportional to

**L, M**and

**x, y**

i.e L : M ∷ x : y

⇒ L : M = x : y

⇒ L × y = Mx

**Ex)**calculate 3rd proportional of 18 and 36 Let 3rd proportion be x

18 : 36 ∷ 36 : x

Let mean proportion be x

Then 18 : x ∷ x : 8

⇒ x² = 144

⇒ x = 12

* Some important rules of ratio:-

**Rule 1:-**If two given ratio are

**l : m**and

**x : y**, then

(i)

**l : m > x : y if ly > mx**
(ii)

**l : m < x : y, if ly < mx**
(iii)

**l : m = x : y, if ly = mx**

**Rule 2:-**If two ratios are given, convert each ratio in such a way that both ratios have same denominator, then compare their numerators, the fractions with greater numerator will be greater

**Ex)**Divide 1150 in the ratio 14 : 9

→ Let 1st part be 14x and 2nd part be 9x

∴ 14x + 9x = 1150

23x = 1150

∴ x = 50

∴ 1st part = 14x = 700

2nd part = 9x = 450

**(Ex)**The ratio of income of manan and Aman is in ratio 2 : 3 and their expenditure is in ratio 7 : 12. If each of then saves 3000 Rs, then find their income and expenditure?

→ Let income of manan and Aman be 2x and 3x

expenditure of manan = (2x – 300) Rs

expenditure of Aman = (3x – 3000) Rs

income of manan = 2x = 10000 Rs

income of Aman = 3x = 15000 Rs

and expenditure of manan = 10000 – 3000 = 7000 Rs

expenditure of Aman = 15000 – 3000 = 12000 Rs

**Ex)**If two numbers are in ratio 3 : 4. If 15 is added to both the numbers, then the ratio becomes 7 : 9. Find the greatest number?

Let the two numbers be 3x and 4x

∴ 9(3x + 15) = 7 (4x + 15)

∴ 27x + 135 = 28x + 105

∴ x = 30

∴ greater number = 4x

= 120

*** Faster approach:-**

Here x =3, y = 4, m = 7, n = 9 and a = 15

∴ Two numbers are

*** Type 4:-**Two numbers are in ratio

**x : y**and

**a**is subtracted from the numbers, then the ratio becomes

**m : n.**The two numbers will be

###
**Partnership**

→ When two or more persons makes a group and invest money for running a certain business and after certain time receive profit in the ratio of their invested money and time period, then such a group is called partnership

**→ It is of 2 types:-**

**(1) Simple partnership:-**If all partners invest their different capitals for the same time period or some capital for different time period.

**(2) Compound partnership:-**If all partners invest their different capitals for different time period.

*** Partners are also of 2 types:-**

**(1) Working partner:-**A partner who not only invests money, but also takes part in business activities and gets some salary for that

**(2) Sleeping partner:-**A partner who only invests money, and not take part in business activities

**Ex)**P and Q starts a business by investing 6000 Rs and 9000 Rs respectively. Find the ratio of their profit after 1 yrs?

**Ex)**A start a business with 6000 rs and B joins the business 5 month later with 8000 rs. Find the share of A and B if total profit is 16000 Rs after 1 year?

A : B

6000 8000

× 12 × 7

72 56

∴ 18 14

∴ 9 7

∴ A’s share = 16000 × 9/16 = 9000 rs

B’s share = 16000 × 7/16 = 7000 rs

→ Different types of questions asked nowadays in the exams are as follow:-

**Type 1:-**If

**a : b : c**is the ratio of investment and

**x : y : z**is the ratio of profits, then the ratio of time period of investment is given by
