Dividing in a given ratio
Divide £40 in the ratio 2 : 3.
A ratio is made up of parts.
We can write the ratio 2 : 3 as
2 parts : 3 parts
The total number of parts is
2 parts + 3 parts = 5 parts
We need to divide £40 by the total number of parts.
£40 ÷ 5 = £8

Dividing in a given ratio
Divide £40 in the ratio 2 : 3.
Each part is worth £8 so
2 parts = 2 × £8 = £16
and
3 parts = 3 × £8 = £24
£40 divided in the ratio 2 : 3 is
£16 : £24
Always check that the parts add up to the original amount.
£16 + £24 = £40

Dividing in a given ratio
A citrus twist cocktail contains orange juice, lemon juice
and lime juice in the ratio 6 : 3 : 1.
How much of each type of juice is contained
in 750 ml of the cocktail?
First, find the total number of parts in the ratio.
6 parts + 3 parts + 1 part = 10 parts
Next, divide 750 ml by the total number of parts.
750 ml ÷ 10 = 75 ml

Dividing in a given ratio
A citrus twist cocktail contains orange juice, lemon juice
and lime juice in the ratio 6 : 3 : 1.
How much of each type of juice is contained
in 750 ml of the cocktail?
Each part is worth 75 ml so,
6 parts of orange juice = 6 × 75 ml = 450 ml
3 parts of lemon juice = 3 × 75 ml = 225 ml
1 part of lime juice = 75 ml
Check that the parts add up to 750 ml.
450 ml + 225 ml + 75 ml = 750 ml
