Exercise 12.1

1. There are 20 girls and 15 boys in a class.

(a) What is the ratio of number of girls to the number of boys?

Ans: Given: Number of girls is 20 and number of boys is 15.

Thus, the ratio of girls to that of boys we have,

$\dfrac{{Number\;of\;girls}}{{Number\;of\;boys}} = \dfrac{{20}}{{15}} = \dfrac{4}{3} = 4:3$

(b) What is the ratio of girls to the total number of students in the class?

Ans: Given: Number of girls is 20

The total number of students in the class $= {\text{ }}20 + 15{\text{ }} = 35$

$\dfrac{{Number\;of\;girls}}{{Total\;Number\;of\;students}} = \dfrac{{20}}{{35}}$

$= \dfrac{{20 \div 5}}{{35 \div 5}}$

$= \dfrac{4}{7} = 4:7$

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.

Ans: Total number of students = 30

Number of students like football = 6

Number of students like cricket = 12

Thus, the number of students like tennis = 30 – 6 – 12 = 12

Therefore,

Ratio of number of students liking football to number of students liking tennis $= \dfrac{6}{{12}} = \dfrac{1}{2} = 1:2$

(b) Number of students liking cricket to total number of students.

Ans: Total number of students = 30

Number of students like football = 6

Number of students like cricket = 12

Ratio of number of students liking cricket to total number of students $=\dfrac{12}{30}=\dfrac{2}{5}=2:5$

3. See the figure and find the ratio of:

(a). Number of triangles to the number of circles inside rectangle.

Ans: In the given figure,

The total number of triangles =3

The total number of circles =2

Therefore,

Required ratio of the number of triangles to the number of circles is

$\dfrac{{Number\;of\;Triangle}}{{Number\;of\;circle}} = \dfrac{3}{2} = 3:2$

(b). Number of squares to all the figures inside the rectangle.

Ans: In the given figure,

The total number of square = 2

The total number of figures =7

Therefore,

Required ratio of the number of square to the total number of figures is

$\dfrac{{Number\;of\;square}}{{Total\;Number\;of\;figures}} = \dfrac{2}{7} = 2:7$

(c). Number of circles to all the figures inside the rectangle.

Ans: In the given figure,

The total number of circles = 2

The total number of figures =7

Therefore,

Required ratio of the number of circles to the total number of figures is

$\dfrac{{Number\;of\;circles}}{{Total\;Number\;of\;figures}} = \dfrac{2}{7} = 2:7$

4. Distances travelled by Hamid and Akhtar in an hour are 9 km and 12 km. Find the ratio of speed of Hamid to the speed of Akhtar.

Ans: Given;

$Speed\;of\;Hamid = \dfrac{{Distance}}{{Time}} = \dfrac{9}{1} = 9km/h$

And distances travelled by Hamid and Akhtar in an hour = 12Km

$\therefore Speed\;of\;Akhtar = \dfrac{{Distance}}{{Time}} = \dfrac{{12}}{1} = 12km/h$

Therefore, Ratio of speed of Hamid to that of speed of Akhtar

$\therefore \dfrac{{Speed\;of\;Hamid}}{{Speed\;of\;Akhtar}} = \dfrac{9}{{12}} = \dfrac{{9 \div 3}}{{12 \div 3}} = \dfrac{3}{4} = 3:4$

5. Fill in the following blanks:

$\dfrac{{15}}{{18}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{6} = \dfrac{{10}}{{\boxed{}}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{{30}}$

Ans: In order to get the missing numbers,

Let consider the fact that

$18 \div 3 = 6$

$\therefore 15 \div 3 = 5$

$\dfrac{{15}}{{18}} = \dfrac{{\boxed5}}{6} = \dfrac{{10}}{{\boxed{}}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{{30}}$

Similarly,

$5 \times 2 = 10$

$\therefore 6 \times 2 = 12$

$\dfrac{{15}}{{18}} = \dfrac{{\boxed5}}{6} = \dfrac{{10}}{{\boxed{12}}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{{30}}$

Similarly, for third missing number compare

$\dfrac{5}{6} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{{30}}$

Thus,

$6 \times 5 = 30$

$\therefore 5 \times 5 = 25$

Hence, after Ansving all equation we get,

$\dfrac{{15}}{{18}} = \dfrac{{\boxed5}}{6} = \dfrac{{10}}{{\boxed{12}}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{25}}}{{30}}$

Yes, these are equivalent ratios.

6. Find the ratio of the following:

a) 81 to 108

Ans:  Required ratio $= \dfrac{{81}}{{108}}$

Take LCM of 81 and 108

$81 = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3$

$108 = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 2 \times 2$

$HCF\;of\;81\;and\;108 = 27$

$Ratio = \dfrac{{81 \div 27}}{{108 \div 27}} = \dfrac{3}{4} = 3:4$

b) 98 to 63

Ans:  Required ratio $= \dfrac{{98}}{{63}}$

Take LCM of 98 and 63

$98 = 2 \times 7 \times 7$

$63 = 3 \times 3 \times 7$

$HCF\;of\;98\;and\;63 = 7$

$Ratio = \dfrac{{98 \div 7}}{{63 \div 7}} = \dfrac{{14}}{9} = 14:9$

c) 33 km to 121 km

Ans:  Required ratio $= \dfrac{{33}}{{121}}$

Take LCM of 11 and 121

$33 = 3 \times 11$

$121 = 11 \times 11$

$HCF\;of\;33\;and\;121 = 11$

$Ratio = \dfrac{{33 \div 11}}{{121 \div 11}} = \dfrac{3}{{11}} = 3:11$

d) 30 minutes to 45 minutes

Ans:  Required ratio $= \dfrac{{30}}{{45}}$

Take LCM of 30 and 45

$30 = 2 \times 3 \times 5$

$45 = 3 \times 3 \times 5$

$HCF\;of\;30\;and\;45 = 15$

$Ratio = \dfrac{{30 \div 15}}{{45 \div 15}} = \dfrac{2}{3} = 2:3$

7. Find the ratio of the following:

(a) 30 minutes to 1.5 hour

Ans: 30 minutes to 1.5 hour

$1.5hours=1.5\times 60=90minutes~~~~$

[1hour= 60 minutes]

Now, ratio of 30 minutes to 1.5 hour $= 30minutes{\text{ }}:{\text{ }}1.5hour$

$=30minutes\text{ }:\text{ 90}minutes$

$=\dfrac{30}{1.5}=\dfrac{3}{9}=\dfrac{3\div 3}{9\div 3}=\dfrac{1}{3}=1:3$

(b) 40 cm to 1.5 m

Ans: $1.5m = 1.5 \times 100cm = 150cm\;\;\;\;\left( {1m = 100cm} \right)$

Now, ratio of 40 cm to 1.5 m

$=40cm:1.5m$

$=40cm:150cm$

$=\dfrac{4}{15}=\dfrac{4}{15}=4:15$

(c)55 paise to Re. 1

Ans: As we know that,

1 Re. 1 = 100 paise

Now, ratio of 55 paise to Re. $1 = 55paise:{\text{ }}100{\text{ }}paise$

$= \dfrac{{55}}{{100}} = \dfrac{{55 \div 5}}{{100 \div 5}} = \dfrac{{11}}{{20}} = 11:20$

(d) 500 ml to 2 liters

Ans: As we know that,

$1litre = 1000ml$

$2liters{\text{ }} = 2 \times 1000ml = 2000 ml$

Now, ratio of 500 ml to 2 liters = 500 ml: 2 liters

$2liters\text{ }=2\times 1000ml=2000ml$

$=\dfrac{5ml}{20ml}=\dfrac{5}{20}=\dfrac{1}{4}=1:4$

8. In a year, Seema earns 1,50,000 and saves  50,000. Find the ratio of:

(a) Money that Seema earns to the money she saves.

Ans: Total earning =  1,50,000 and Saving =  50,000

$Money\;spent = 1,50,000 - 50,000 = 1,00,000$

Therefore, the ratio of money earned to money saved

Ratio of money earns to money saves$=\dfrac{150000}{50000}=\dfrac{3}{1}=3:1$

(b) Money that she saves to the money she spends.

Ans: Money spend by seema = Earned money – Saved money

$\text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{Money\;saved\;by\;seema}}{{Money\;spend\;by\;seema}}$

Ratio of money saved to money spend$=\dfrac{5000}{100000}=\dfrac{1}{2}=1:2$

9. There are 102 teachers in a school of 3300 students. Find the ratio of the number of teachers to the number of students.

Ans:   Given; Number of teachers =102

Number of students =3300

$\text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{Number{\text{ }}of{\text{ }}teachers}}{{Number{\text{ }}of{\text{ Students}}}}\;$

$= \dfrac{{102}}{{3300}}$

Take LCM of 102 and 3300

$102 = 2 \times 3 \times 17$

$3300 = 2 \times 3 \times 2 \times 5 \times 5 \times 11$

HCF$\;of\;102\;and\;3300 = 2 \times 3 = 6$

Ratio = $\dfrac{{102 \div 6}}{{3300 \div 6}} = \dfrac{{17}}{{550}} = 17:550$

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.

Ans: Given number of girls = 2300

And total number of students = 4320

$\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\text{ }of\text{ girls}}{Number\text{ }of\text{ Students}}\$

$=\dfrac{230}{432}=\dfrac{115}{216}$

(b) Number of boys to the number of girls.

Ans: Number of boys = Total number of students - Number of girls

$= 4320 - 2300 = 2020$

$\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\text{ }of\text{ boys}}{Number\text{ }of\text{ girls}}\$

$=\dfrac{202}{230}=\dfrac{101}{115}$

(c) Number of boys to the total number of students.

Ans: Number of boys = Total number of students - Number of girls

$= 4320 - 2300 = 2020$

$\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\text{ }of\text{ boys}}{Number\text{ }of\text{ Students}}\$

$=\dfrac{202}{432}=\dfrac{101}{216}$

11. Out of 1800 students in a school, 750 opted basketballs, 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.

Ans: Given; Total number of students = 1800

Number of students who opted basketball = 750

Number of students who opted cricket =800

Therefore, number of students opted tennis $= 1800--\left( {750{\text{ }} + 800} \right){\text{ }} = 250$

$\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\ of\ students\text{ }who\text{ }opted\text{ }basketball}{Number\ of\ students\text{ }who\text{ }opted\text{ table-tennis}}\$

$=\dfrac{75}{25}=\dfrac{3}{1}=3:1$

(b) Number of students who opted cricket to the number of students opting basketball.

Ans:  $\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\ of\ students\text{ }who\text{ }opted\ cricket\text{ }}{Number\ of\ students\text{ }who\text{ }opted\text{ }basketball}\$

$=\dfrac{80}{75}=\dfrac{16}{15}=16:15$

(c) Number of students who opted basketball to the total number of students.

Ans:  $\text{Required ratio}=\dfrac{Number\ of\ students\text{ }who\text{ }opted\ basketball\text{ }}{Total\text{ }number\ of\ students}$

$=\dfrac{75}{180}=\dfrac{5}{12}=5:12$

12. Cost of a dozen pens is 180 and cost of 8 ball pens is 56. Find the ratio of the cost of a pen to  the cost of a ball pen.

Ans: Given, cost of 12 pens = Rs 180

The cost of 1 pen = $\dfrac{{Total\;cost\;of\;pen}}{{Number\;of\;pen}} = \dfrac{{180}}{{12}} = 15$

Also, given cost of 8 pens = Rs 56

The cost of 1 ball pen = $\dfrac{{Total\;cost\;of\;1\;ball\;pen}}{{Number\;of\;pen}} = \dfrac{{56}}{8} = 7$

Now, $\text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{cost\;of\;1\;pen}}{{cost\;of\;1\;ball\;pen}} = \dfrac{{15}}{7} = 15:7$

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 meters) 10 40 Length of the hall (in meters) 25 50

Ans: Given, Ratio of breadth and length of a hall = 2:5

Also, given breath of the hall = 10

And length of the hall = 25

Then, Ratio of breadth to length $= \dfrac{{10}}{{25}} = \dfrac{2}{5} = 2:5$

Other equivalent ratios are therefore for first missing number we have,

$\dfrac{{10}}{{25}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{}}}{{50}}$

$\dfrac{{10 \times 2}}{{25 \times 2}} = \dfrac{{\boxed{20}}}{{50}}$

Similarly, for second missing number we have,

$\dfrac{{10}}{{25}} = \dfrac{{20 \times 2}}{{50 \times 2}} = \dfrac{{40}}{{\boxed{100}}}$

Thus, the complete table is

 Breadth of the hall (in meters) 10 20 40 Length of the hall (in meters) 25 50 100

14. Divide 20 pens between Sheela and Sangeeta in the ratio 3: 2.

Ans:  Given ratio = 3:2

Sum of the ratio  $= 3 + {\text{ }}2 = 5$

Therefore, part of Sheela $= \dfrac{3}{5}$

And part of Sangeeta $= \dfrac{2}{5}$

Total number of pens = 20

Number of pens for Sheela $= \dfrac{3}{5} \times 20 = 12$

Number of pens for Sangeeta $= \dfrac{2}{5} \times 20 = 8$

Hence, out of 20 pens Sheela gets 12 pens and Sangeeta gets 8 pens.

15. Mother wants to divide 36 between her daughters Shreya and Bhoomika in the ratio of their ages. If the age of Shreya is 15 years and age of Bhoomika is 12 years, find how much Shreya and Bhoomika will get.

Ans:  Given: Shreya’s age = 15 years

And Bhoomika age = 12 years,

Ratio of their age $= \dfrac{{15}}{{12}} = \dfrac{5}{4} = 5:4$

Now, mother wants to divide Rs 36 between her daughters in the ratio of their ages.

Then sum of the parts of ratio $= 5 + 4 = 9$

$\therefore Shreya's\;share = \dfrac{5}{9} \times 36 = Rs\;20$

$\therefore Bhoomika\;share = \dfrac{4}{9} \times 36 = Rs\;16$

Hence, Shreya gets Rs 20 and Bhoomika gets Rs 16.

16. Present age of father is 42 years and that of his son is 14 years. Find the ratio of:

(a) Present age of father to the present age of son.

Ans: Given: Present age of father = 42 years

And Present age of son = 14 years

$\text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{Present{\text{ }}age{\text{ }}of{\text{ }}father}}{{Present{\text{ }}age{\text{ }}of{\text{ son}}}}$

$= \dfrac{{42}}{{14}} = \dfrac{{42 \div 14}}{{14 \div 14}} = \dfrac{3}{1} = 3:1$

(b) Age of the father to the age of the son, when son was 12 years old.

Ans:  When son was 12 years old

Then, father’s age $= 42 - {\text{ }}2 = 40$

$\therefore \text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{{\text{2}}\;{\text{years}}\;{\text{back }}father\;age}}{{{\text{2}}\;{\text{years}}\;{\text{back son age}}}}$

$= \dfrac{{40}}{{12}} = \dfrac{{40 \div 4}}{{12 \div 4}} = \dfrac{{10}}{3} = 10:3$

(c) Age of father after 10 years to the age of son after 10 years.

Ans: Age of father after 10 years $= 42 + 10 = 52\;years$

And the age of son after 10 years $= 14 + 10 = 24\;years$

$\therefore \text{Required ratio}= \dfrac{{After\;10\;{\text{years}}\;father\;age}}{{After\;10\;{\text{years}}\;{\text{son age}}}}$

$= \dfrac{{52}}{{24}} = \dfrac{{52 \div 4}}{{24 \div 4}} = \dfrac{{13}}{6} = 13:6$

(d) Age of father to the age of son when father was 30 years old.

Ans: When father was 30 years old then the age of son is 2 years.

$42 - 12 = 30\;years$

$\therefore 14 - 12 = 2\;years$

$\therefore \text{Required ratio} = \dfrac{{{\text{12}}\;{\text{years}}\;{\text{back }}father\;age}}{{{\text{12}}\;{\text{years}}\;{\text{back son age}}}}$

$= \dfrac{{30}}{2} = \dfrac{{30 \div 2}}{{2 \div 2}} = \dfrac{{15}}{1} = 15:1$

Exercise 12.2

1. Determine the following are in proportion:

(a) 15, 45, 40, 120

Ans: We have, 15, 45, 40, 120

$\therefore Ratio\ of\ 15\ to\ 45=\dfrac{15}{45}=\dfrac{15\div 15}{45\div15}=\dfrac{1}{3}=1:3$

$And\ Ratio\ of\ 40\ to\ 120=\dfrac{4}{12}=\dfrac{1}{3}=1:3$

Since, 15:45 = 40: 120

Therefore, 15, 45, 40 and 120 are in proportion.

(b) 33, 121, 9, 96

Ans: We have, 33, 121, 9, 96

$\therefore Ratio\;of\;33\;to\;121 = \dfrac{{33}}{{121}} = \dfrac{{33 \div 11}}{{121 \div 11}} = \dfrac{3}{{11}} = 3:11$

And $\;Ratio\;of\;9\;to\;96 = \dfrac{9}{{96}} = \dfrac{{9 \div 3}}{{96 \div 3}} = \dfrac{3}{{32}} = 3:32$

Since, $33:121 \ne 9:96$

Therefore, 33, 121, 9, 96 are not in proportion.

(c) 24, 28, 36, 48

Ans: We have, 24, 28, 36, 48

Ratio $\;of\;24\;to\;28 = \dfrac{{24}}{{28}} = \dfrac{{24 \div 4}}{{28 \div 4}} = \dfrac{6}{7} = 6:7$

And $\;Ratio\;of\;36\;to\;48 = \dfrac{{36}}{{48}} = \dfrac{{36 \div 6}}{{48 \div 6}} = \dfrac{6}{7} = 6:8$

Since, $24:28 \ne 36:48$

Therefore, 24, 28, 36 and 48 are not in proportion.

(d) 32, 48, 70, 210

Ans: We have, 32, 48, 70, 210

$\therefore Ratio\ of\ 32\ to\ 48=\dfrac{32}{48}=\dfrac{32\div 16}{48\div 16}=\dfrac{2}{3}=2:3$

$And\ Ratio\ of\ 70\ to\ 210=\dfrac{7}{21}=\dfrac{7\div 7}{21\div 7}=\dfrac{1}{3}=1:3$

$Since,\ 32:49\ne 70:210$

Therefore, 32, 48, 70 and 210are not in proportion.

(e) 4, 6, 8, 12

Ans: We have, 4, 6, 8, 12

$\therefore Ratio\;of\;4\;to\;6 = \dfrac{4}{6} = \dfrac{{4 \div 2}}{{6 \div 3}} = \dfrac{2}{3} = 2:3$

And $\;Ratio\;of\;8\;to\;12 = \dfrac{8}{{12}} = \dfrac{{8 \div 4}}{{12 \div 4}} = \dfrac{2}{3} = 2:3$

Since, $\;4:6 = 8:12$

Therefore, 4, 6, 8 and 12 are in proportion.

(f) 33, 44, 75, 100

Ans: We have, 33, 44, 75, 100

Ratio $\;of\;33\;to\;44 = \dfrac{{33}}{{44}} = \dfrac{{33 \div 11}}{{44 \div 11}} = \dfrac{3}{4} = 3:4$

And $\;Ratio\;of\;75\;to\;100 = \dfrac{{75}}{{100}} = \dfrac{{75 \div 25}}{{100 \div 25}} = \dfrac{3}{4} = 3:4$

Since,$\;33:44 = 75:100$

Therefore, 33, 44, 75 and 100 are in proportion.

Hence, it is True.

(e) 5.2: 3.9: 3: 4

Ans: $\dfrac{{5.2}}{{3.9}} = \dfrac{3}{4}$

$\dfrac{{5.2 \div 1.3}}{{3.9 \div 1.3}} = \dfrac{3}{4}$

$\dfrac{4}{3} \ne \dfrac{3}{4}$

Hence, it is false.

(f) 0.9: 0.36: 10: 4

Ans: $\dfrac{{0.9}}{{0.36}} = \dfrac{{10}}{4}$

$\dfrac{{0.9 \div 0.18}}{{0.36 \div 0.18}} = \dfrac{{10 \div 2}}{{4 \div 2}}$

$\dfrac{5}{2} = \dfrac{5}{2}$

Hence, it is True.

3. Are the following statements true?

(a) 40 persons: 200 persons = Rs15: Rs 75

Ans: We have,

40 persons : 200 persons =$\dfrac{4}{20}=\dfrac{4\div 4}{20\div 4}=\dfrac{1}{5}$

Rs15:Rs 75= $\dfrac{{15}}{{75}} = \dfrac{{15 \div 15}}{{75 \div 15}} = \dfrac{1}{5}$

Hence, the statement is true.

(b)  7.5 liters: 15 liters = 5 kg= 10 kg

Ans: We have,

$7.5liters:15liters = \dfrac{{7.5}}{{15}} = \dfrac{{75}}{{150}} = \dfrac{{75 \div 75}}{{150 \div 75}} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

$5{\text{ }}kg:10kg = \dfrac{5}{{10}} = \dfrac{{5 \div 5}}{{10 \div 5}} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, the statement is true.

(c)  99 kg: 45 kg = Rs 44: Rs 20

Ans: We have,

${\text{99 }}kg:45kg = \dfrac{{99}}{{45}} = \dfrac{{99 \div 9}}{{45 \div 9}} = \dfrac{{11}}{5}$

$Rs44:Rs{\text{ }}20 = \dfrac{{44}}{{20}} = \dfrac{{44 \div 4}}{{20 \div 4}} = \dfrac{{11}}{5}$

Hence, the statement is true.

(d) 32 m: 64 m = 6 sec.: 12 sec.

Ans: We have,

$32m:{\text{ }}64m{\text{ }} = \dfrac{{32}}{{64}} = \dfrac{{32 \div 32}}{{64 \div 32}} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

$6sec.{\text{ }}:12sec. = \dfrac{6}{{12}} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, the statement is true.

(e) 45 km: 60 km = 12 hours: 15 hours

Ans: We have,

$45km:60km = \dfrac{{45}}{{60}} = \dfrac{{45 \div 15}}{{60 \div 15}} = \dfrac{3}{4}$

$12{\text{ }}hours{\text{ }}:{\text{ }}15hours = \dfrac{{12}}{{15}} = \dfrac{{12 \div 3}}{{15 \div 3}} = \dfrac{4}{5}$

Hence, it is false statement.

4. Determine if the following ratios form a proportion. Also, write the middle terms and extreme terms where the ratios form a proportion:

(a) 25 cm:1 m and Rs40:Rs160

Ans: ${\text{25 cm : 1 m = 25 cm : (1 }} \times {\text{ 100) cm = 25 cm : 100 cm = }}\dfrac{{25}}{{100}} = \dfrac{1}{4} = 1:4$

$Rs40:Rs160=\dfrac{4}{16}=\dfrac{4\div 4}{16\div 4}=\dfrac{1}{4}=1:4$

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.

Middle terms are 1 m and Rs 40 and Extreme terms are 25 cm and Rs 160.

(b) 39 liters: 65 liters and 6 bottles: 10 bottles

Ans: ${\text{39 liters : 65 liters}} = \dfrac{{39}}{{65}} = \dfrac{{39 \div 13}}{{65 \div 13}} = \dfrac{3}{5} = 3:5$

${\text{6 bottles : 10 bottles = }}\dfrac{6}{{10}} = \dfrac{{6 \div 2}}{{10 \div 2}} = \dfrac{3}{5} = 3:5$

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.

Middle terms are 65 liters and 6 bottles and extreme terms are 39 liters and 10 bottles.

(c) 2 kg: 80 kg and 25 g: 625 g

Ans: ${\text{2 kg : 80 kg = }}\dfrac{2}{{80}} = \dfrac{{2 \div 2}}{{80 \div 2}} = \dfrac{1}{{40}} = 1:40$

${\text{25 g : 625 g = }}\dfrac{{25}}{{625}} = \dfrac{{25 \div 25}}{{625 \div 25}} = \dfrac{1}{{25}} = 1:25$

Since the ratios are not equal, therefore these are not in proportion

(d) 200 ml: 2.5 ml and RS4: Rs 50

Ans: $200ml:2.5ml\text{= 200 ml : (25 }\times \text{ 1000) liters = 200 ml : 2500 ml =}\dfrac{2}{25}=\dfrac{2}{25}=2:25$

$RS4:Rs50=\dfrac{4}{50}=\dfrac{4\div 2}{50\div 2}=\dfrac{2}{25}=2:25$

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.

Middle terms are 2.5 liters and Rs 4 and Extreme terms are 200 ml and Rs 50.

Exercise 12.3

1. If the cost of 7 m of cloth is Rs 1470, find the cost of 5 m of cloth.

Ans:   Given: the cost of 7 m of cloth = Rs 1470

Cost of 1 m of cloth $= \dfrac{{1470}}{7} = Rs 210$

Therefore, cost of 5 m of cloth $= 210 \times 5 = Rs 1050$

Hence, the cost of 5 m of cloth is Rs 1050.

2. Ekta earns Rs 3000 in 10 days. How much will she earn in 30 days?

Ans:  Earning of 1 day $= \dfrac{{3000}}{{10}} = Rs 300$

Earning of 30 days $= Rs300 \times 30 = Rs 9000$

Thus, the earning of 30 days is Rs 9,000.

3. If it has rained 276 mm in the last 3 days, how many cm of rain will fall in one full week (7 days)? Assume that the rain continues to fall at the same rate.

Ans:   Given; rainfall in 3 days = 276 mm

Rain in 1 day $= \dfrac{{276}}{3} = 92mm$

Rain in 7 days $= 92 \times 7 = 644mm$

Thus, the rain in 7 days is 644 mm.

4. Cost of 5 kg of wheat is Rs 91.50.

(a) What will be the cost of 8 kg of wheat?

Ans: Given: Cost of 5 kg of wheat=Rs 91.50

Cost of 1 kg of wheat $= \dfrac{{Rs91.50}}{5} = Rs 18.3$

Cost of 8 kg of wheat $= Rs 18.3 \times 8 = Rs 146.4$

Hence, the cost of 8 kg of wheat is Rs 146.4.

(b) What quantity of wheat can be purchased in Rs 183?

Ans:   Given, in Rs 91.50, quantity of wheat that can be purchased =5 Kg

Therefore, In Rs 1, quantity of wheat that can be purchased $= \dfrac{5}{{91.50}} = \dfrac{{5 \times 10}}{{915}} = \dfrac{{50}}{{915}}Kg$

Therefore, In Rs 183, quantity of wheat that can be purchased $= \dfrac{{50}}{{915}}Kg \times 183 = 10Kg$

Hence, 10 kg wheat can be purchased in Rs 61.

5. The temperature dropped 15 degrees Celsius in the last 30 days. If the rate of temperature drop remains the same, how many degrees will the temperature drop in the next ten days?

Ans:  Degree of temperature dropped in last 30 days = 15 degrees

$\therefore$Degree of temperature dropped in 1 days $= \dfrac{{15}}{{30}} = \dfrac{{15 \div 15}}{{30 \div 15}} = \dfrac{1}{2}\deg ree$

$\therefore$Degree of temperature dropped in last 10 days $= \dfrac{1}{2} \times 10 = 5\deg ree$

Thus, 5-degree Celsius temperature dropped in 10 days.

6. Shains pays Rs 15000 as rent for 3 months. How much does she has to pay for a whole year, if the rent per month remains same?

Ans:  Rent paid for 3 months = Rs 15000

$\therefore$Rent paid for 1 months $= \dfrac{{Rs 15000}}{3} = Rs 5000$

$\therefore$Rent paid for 12 months $= Rs 5000 \times 12 = Rs 60,000$

Thus, the total rent of one year is Rs 60,000.

7. Cost of 4 dozen bananas is  180. How many bananas can be purchased for Rs 90?

Ans:  Cost of 4 dozen bananas = Rs 180

We know that 1 dozen = 12 units

4 dozen $= 4 \times 12 = 48$

$\therefore$Cost of 48 bananas = Rs 180

$\therefore$ Given, in Rs 180, number of bananas that can be purchased = 48

$\therefore$In Rs 1, number of bananas that can be purchased $= \dfrac{{48}}{{180}} = \dfrac{4}{15}$

$\therefore$From Rs 90. number of bananas can be purchased $= \dfrac{4}{15} \times 90 = \dfrac{{360}}{15} = 24$

Thus, 24 bananas can be purchased for Rs 90.

8. The weight of 72 books is 9 kg what is the weight of 40 such books?

Ans:  The weight of 72 books = 9 kg

$\therefore$ The weight of 1 book$= \dfrac{9}{{72}}Kg$

$\therefore$The weight of 40 books$= \dfrac{9}{{72}}Kg \times 40 = \dfrac{{360}}{{72}} = \dfrac{{360 \div 72}}{{72 \div 72}} = 5Kg$

Thus, the weight of 40 books is 5 kg.

9. A truck requires 108 liters of diesel for covering a distance of 594 km. How much diesel will be required by the truck to cover a distance of 1650 km?

Ans:  For covering 594 km, a truck will be required diesel = 108 liters

$\therefore$For covering 1 km, a truck will be required diesel $= \dfrac{{108}}{{594}}L = \dfrac{{108 \div 54}}{{594 \div 54}} = \dfrac{2}{{11}}L$

$\therefore$ For covering 1650 km, a truck will be required diesel$= \dfrac{2}{{11}} \times 1650L = 2 \times 150 = 300L$

Thus, 300 L diesel will be required by the truck to cover a distance of 1650 km.

10. Raju purchases 10 pens for Rs150 and Manish buys 7 pens for Rs84. Can you say who got the pen cheaper?

Ans:  Raju purchase 10 pens for = Rs 150

$\therefore$Cost of 1 pen $= \dfrac{{150}}{{10}} = \operatorname{Rs} 15$

For Manish, cost of 7 pens = Rs 84

$\therefore$ Cost of 1 pen $= \dfrac{{84}}{7} = Rs12$

Here,    $Rs12 < \operatorname{Rs} 15$

Thus, Manish got the pens cheaper.

11. Anish made 42 runs in 6 overs and Anup made 63 runs in 7 overs. Who made more runs per over?

Ans:  Anish made in 6 overs = 42 runs

$\therefore$Anish made in 1 overs $= \dfrac{{42}}{6} = 7$

Anup made in 7 overs = 63

$\therefore$Anup made in 1 overs$= \dfrac{{63}}{7} = 9$

Here, $9 > 7$

Thus, Anup made more runs per over.

### List of Topics Covered Under NCERT Class 6 Maths Chapter 12 - Ratio and Proportion

 Introduction to Ratio and Proportion Ratio Proportion Unitary Method

### A Glance About The Topic

Ratio and Proportion is mainly showing the difference between two numbers.

Ratio:  If the total number of boys in a class is 40 and the total number of girls in a class is 50. Then the ratio between the number of boys and girls in a class is 40 / 50, which is 4:5.

The number of students in a class is equal to the sum of the number of boys in a class and the number of girls in a class.

The ratio between the number of students in a class and the number of girls in a class is 90 / 50 which is 9: 5

Proportion: If the two sets of numbers are in the same ratio, then the numbers are said to be the proportion.

For example,  40: 50 and 800: 1000

Here, 40: 50 can be written as 4: 5 and 800: 1000 can be written as 4:5

So, 40: 50 and 800: 1000 are in proportion.

Compare 70:60 and 40: 80

Here, 70:60 can be written as 7:6 and 40:80 can be written as 1:2

So, 70:60 and 40:80 are not in proportion.

Unitary Method: In the unitary method, we need to find the answer for one product and can calculate it for many.

For example: The Cost of 2 liter petrol is Rs. 50. What is the cost of 10 liter petrol

Here, we need to calculate the cost of 1 liter petrol,

That is 50/2 = 25.

Then the cost of 10 liter petrol is 250.

### Chapter 12 – Ratio and Proportion

12.1 Introduction

In NCERT Class 6 Maths Chapter 12, the first section of the chapter will focus on the basic concepts of Ratio and Proportion. You have to recall the concepts of multiplication and division that you have learned in your earlier classes. Ratio and proportion Class 6 chapter is an important chapter for students to study. By using those concepts, you need to learn the 6th standard Maths Ratio and Proportion. You will learn about the basics of each concept of Ratio and Proportion for Class 6 and their applications. You will also find several problems in between and at the end of the chapters of Ratio and Proportion Questions for Class 6. Many problems will be discussed in Class 6 Maths Chapter 12, while others will be for you to solve. You will find that these problems will be easy initially, but the difficulty level increases as you develop your concepts. However, if you study the Class 6 Maths Ratio and proportion solution chapter in detail, you will be well-equipped to solve the problems’ complexity. The PDF presents Ratio and Proportion for Class 6 in a simple, concise manner.

12.2 Ratio

If we say that Rita’s age is 10 years and her father’s age is 30 years, how many times is father’s age compared to Rita’s age? The obvious answer is 3. Another way to frame the question is the ratio of the father’s age to that of Rita’s age. When we compare items in terms of ‘how many times,’ we define it as a ratio. The ratio is denoted by the symbol ‘:.’ Students have to study the Ratio and Proportion 6th class standard. Units of both should be similar. Ratio and proportion for Class 6 teach you to compare the road’s length with that of a highway. But according to Ratio and Proportion Class 6, you cannot compare the length of the road to the weight of an elephant.

For example, if a pony height is about 3 feet, while that of a horse is about 7.5 feet. The heights of a pony to a horse are 3 feet/7.5 feet= 1:2.5. The ratio of the height of the horse to that of the pony is 2.5:1. However, you cannot compare the height of the pony to the weight of the horse. You must go through some of the Ratio and Proportion Questions for Class 6.

All the problems have their solution discussed by our experts in that PDF file for NCERT Solutions of Class 6 Maths.

Exercise 12.1 Solutions contain answers to 16 questions (10 short questions and 6 Long questions).

12.3 Proportion

To define proportion, we need to have two ratios. If the two ratios are equal, we say that the two ratios are in proportion. Therefore, we need four different entities to describe a proportion. A proportion is written as A:B: C:D. A and D are called extreme terms, and B and C are known as the middle terms.

Let us describe the proportion with an example.

Question 1 - Are 5:35 and 7:49 in proportion?

Solution: 5:35 = 1:7

7:49 = 1:7.

Therefore, 5:35 and 7:49 proportional.

Question 2 - Are 6:42 and 7:56 in proportion?

Solution: 6:42 = 1:7

7:56 = 1:8

Therefore, 6:42 and 7:56 are not in proportion.

In these two examples, you will understand how to find the proportion of two ratios. You will also learn how to calculate proportion and compare the two ratios to find out the proportion. More of such problems and solutions in Ratio and Proportion Class 6 NCERT solution PDF can be easily downloaded from the Vedantu website.

12.4 Unitary Method

In some mathematical problems, we might need to find the solution of more than one entity to come to the final solution. This stepwise solving of the problem, where we find a unit’s value and then calculate the total value of all the units, is called the unitary method. The unitary method has been included in ch 12 Class 6 Maths.

For example,

Question 1: Jekyll can eat 10 apples in 2 hours. How many apples will Jekyll eat in 16 hours?

Solution: Jekyll takes 2 hours to eat 10 apples.

Jekyll will take 1 hour to eat 10/2= 5 apples.
