Question 1.

For a school fair, Lolita’s parents donated 4 bottles of orange juice, 10 bottles of fruit punch and 8 bottles of apple juice. Find the ratio of the number of bottles of orange juice to the number of bottles of fruit punch to the number of bottles of apple juice Lolita’s parents donated.

Answer: 2 : 5 : 4

Explanation:

Given,

Lolita’s parents donated 4 bottles of orange juice,

10 bottles of fruit punch,

8 bottles of apple juice,

Question 2.

A company gave a total of $900 to three charities. Charity A received $200, Charity B received $400 and Charity C received the remaining amount. What is the ratio of the amount Charity A received to the amount Charity B received to the amount Charity C received?

Answer: 2 : 4 : 3

Explanation:

Given,

A company gave a $900 to three charities,

Charity A received $200,

Charity B received $400,

Charity C received the remaining amount,

By subtracting Charity A’s and Charity B’s amount from the total amount,

900 – 600 = 300

The ratio of amount Charity A received to the amount Charity B received to the amount Charity C is 200 : 400 : 300 to get into the simplest form we get 2 : 4 : 3
