__Exercise
3.1__

** **

**1. Fill in the blanks.**

**(i) Ratio of ₹ 3 to ₹ 5 = **__3 : 5__**.**

**(ii) Ratio of 3m to 200 cm = **

**(iii) Ratio of 5 km 400 m to 6 km = **

**(iv) Ratio of 75 paise to ₹ 2 = **__3 : 8. [75 : 200]__**.**

** **

**2. Say whether the following statements
are True or False.**

**(i) The ratio of 130 cm to 1 m is 13 : 10.**

**(ii) One of the terms in a ratio cannot
be 1.**

** **

**3. Find the simplified form of the
following ratios.**

**(i) 15 : 20 (ii) 32 : 24 (iii) 7 :
15 (iv) 12 : 27 (v) 75 : 100**

**Solution: **

**(i) 15 : 20**

Fractional form = (15 ÷ 5) / (20 ÷ 5) = 3 / 4

Simplest form = 3 : 4

**(ii) 32 : 24**

Fractional form = [32 ÷ 8] / [24
÷ 8] = 4 / 3

Simplest form = 4 : 3

**(iii) 7 : 15**

Fractional form = 7 / 15 (No common divisor)

Simplest form = 7 : 15

**(iv) 12 : 27**

Fractional form = [12 ÷ 3] / [27 ÷
3] = 4 / 9

Simplest form = 4 : 9

**(v) 75: 100**

Fractional form = [75 ÷ 25] / [100 ÷ 25] = 3 / 4

Simplest form = 3 : 4

** **

**4. Akilan walks 10 km in an hour while Selvi walks 6 km in an hour. Find the simplest ratio of
the distance covered by Akilan to that of Selvi.**

**Solution:**

Akilan walks in an hour = 10 km

Selvi walks in an hour = 6 km

Ratio of distance covered by both = 10 : 6

Simplest form:

[10 ÷ 2] / [6 ÷
2] = 5 / 3

Distance covered by Akilan and Selvi = 5 : 3

** **

**5. The cost of parking a bicycle is
₹ 5 and the cost of parking a scooter is ₹ 15. Find the simplest ratio of the parking
cost of a bicycle to that of a scooter.**

**Solution:**

Parking cost of a bicycle = Rs. 5

Parking cost of a scooter = Rs.15

Simplest ratio of bicycle to scooter

[5 ÷ 5] / [15 ÷
5] = 1 / 3

Ratio of bicycle to scooter = 1 : 3

** **

**6. Out of 50 students in a class,
30 are boys. Find the ratio of**

**(i) number of boys to the number of
girls.**

**(ii) number of girls to the total
number of students.**

**(iii) number of boys to the total
number of students.**

**Solution:**

Total No. of students = 50

No. of boys = 30

No. of girls = 50 − 30

= 20 girls

(i) number of boys to the number of girls.

boys : girls = 30 : 20

Simplest form = [30 ÷ 10] / [20
÷ 10] = 3 / 2

boys : girls = 3:2

(ii) number of girls to the total number of students.

girls : total students = 20 : 50

Simplest form = [20 ÷ 10] / [50 ÷ 10] = 2 / 5

girls : students = 2 : 5

(iii) number of boys to the total number of students.

boys : total students = 30 : 50

Simplest form = [30 ÷ 10] / [50
÷ 10] = 3 / 5

boys : students = 3 : 5
