Tick (√) the correct answer which is given below. Know all the tricks to solve the given questions. We have given 4 options for every question which looks similar. Find out the correct answer from the given 4 answers.

Question 1.
A ratio equivalent to 6 : 14 is:
(i) 3 : 9; (ii) 6 : 10; (iii) 3 : 7; (iv) 18 : 49

Solution:

Given ratio is 6 : 14
Divide the given ratio by 2.
$$\frac { 6 }{ 2 }$$ : $$\frac { 14 }{ 2 }$$ = 3 : 7

Therefore, the answer is (iii) 3 : 7.

Question 2.
The ratio 245 : 588 in simplest form is:
(i) 5 : 12; (ii) 7 : 12; (iii) 10 : 24; (iv) none of these

Solution:

Given ratio is 245 : 588
Divide the given ratio with 7.
$$\frac { 245 }{ 7 }$$ : $$\frac { 588 }{ 7 }$$ = 35 : 84.
Again divide the 35 : 84 ratio by 7.
$$\frac { 35 }{ 7 }$$ : $$\frac { 84 }{ 7 }$$ = 5 : 12.

Therefore, the answer is (i) 5 : 12.

Question 3.
In a classroom, there are 80 boys and 60 girls. The ratio of boys to girls is:
(i) 3 : 4; (ii) 4 : 3; (iii) 4 : 5; (iv) none of these

Solution:

Given that in a classroom, there are 80 boys and 60 girls. Therefore, the ratio becomes 80 : 60
Divide the given ratio with 10.
$$\frac { 80 }{ 10 }$$ : $$\frac { 60 }{ 10 }$$ = 8 : 6.
Again divide the 8 : 6 ratio by 2.
$$\frac { 8 }{ 2 }$$ : $$\frac { 6 }{ 2 }$$ = 4 : 3.

Therefore, the answer is (ii) 4 : 3.

Question 4.
Two numbers are in the ratio 14 : 18. If the sum of the numbers is 224, then the larger number is:

Solution:

Given that two numbers are in the ratio 14 : 18. If the sum of the numbers is 224.
Let the ratio be x.
So, the numbers become 14x and 18x.
Their addition becomes 14x + 18x = 224.
32x = 224
Divide the above equation by 32.
32x/32 = 224/32
x = 7.

Therefore, the larger number is x = 7.

Question 5.
The ratio of 4.5 m to 30 cm is:
(i) 1 : 15; (ii) 15 : 1; (iii) 10 : 15; (iv) 15 : 10;

Solution:

Given that ratio of 4.5 m to 30 cm.
Convert meters to centimeters.
1 meter = 100 centimeters
4.5 meters = 450 centimeters.
Now, the ratio becomes 450 : 30
Divide the ratio by 30.
450/30 : 30/30
15 : 1

Therefore, the ratio is (ii) 15 : 1.

Question 6.
The ratio of 2 hours to 400 seconds is:
(i) 1 : 36; (ii) 9 : 2; (iii) 1 : 18; (iv) 18 : 1

Solution:

Given that ratio of 2 hours to 400 seconds.
Convert hours to seconds.
1 hour = 60 * 60 seconds = 360 seconds
2 hours = 360 * 2 seconds = 7200 seconds.
Now, the ratio becomes 7200 : 400
Divide the ratio by 400.
7200/400 : 400/400
18 : 1

Therefore, the ratio is (iv) 18 : 1.

Question 7.
In 8 : 14 : : 32 : 56, 14 and 32 are called
(i) extreme terms; (ii) middle terms; (iii) b middle and c extreme term; (iv) none of these

Solution:

If the proportion can be written as- a : b :: c : d, a and d are called extreme terms, and b and c are called middle terms.
The extreme terms are in proportion and the middle terms are in proportion.
So, from the given ratio 8 : 14 : : 32 : 56, 14, and 32 are called middle terms.

Therefore, the answer is (ii) middle terms.

Question 8.
The first, second, and fourth terms of a proportion are 8, 12, and 27 respectively. Then the third term is:
(i) 36; (ii) 28; (iii) 48; (iv) 32

Solution:

Given that The first, second, and fourth terms of a proportion are 8, 12, and 27 respectively.
Let the third number be x.
8 : 12 :: x : 27
We know that the product of mean is equal to the product of extreme.
27 * 8 = 12x
216 = 12x
Now, divide the above equation by 12.
216/12 = 12x/12
18 = x

Therefore, the third number is 18.

Question 9.
If 2, 1, 7, 12 are in proportion, then:
(i) 2 × 1 = 7 × 12; (ii) 2 × 7 = 1 × 12; (iii) 2 × 12 = 1 × 7; (iv) none of these

Solution:

If the proportion can be written as a : b :: c : d, a and d are called extreme terms, and b and c are called middle terms.
The extreme terms are in proportion and the middle terms are in proportion.
a : b :: c : d can also write as a * d = b * c.
Here a = 2, b = 1, c = 7, and d = 12.
So, from the given options, 2 × 12 = 1 × 7 is correct.

Therefore, the answer is (iii) 2 × 12 = 1 × 7.

Question 10.
If a, b and c are in proportion, then:
(i) a : b : : c : a; (ii) a : b : : b : c; (iii) a : b : : c : b; (iv) a : c : : b : c

Solution:

If a, b and c are in proportion, then we can write it as a: b:: b: c

Therefore, the answer is (ii) a: b :: b: c.

Question 11.
35 : 60 is equivalent to:
(i) 70 : 120; (ii) 120 : 70; (iii) 72 : 42; (iv) 42 : 72

Solution:

Given ratio is 35: 60
Multiply the given ratio by 2 on both sides.
35 * 2 : 60 * 2 = 70 : 120

Therefore, the answer is (i) 70: 120.

Question 12.
The length and breadth of a rectangle are in the ratio 5: 2. If the breadth is 9 cm, then the length of the rectangle is:
(i) 14 cm; (ii) 22.5 cm; (iii) 18 cm; (iv) 21 cm

Solution:

Given that the length and breadth of a rectangle are in the ratio 5: 2. If the breadth is 9 cm, then the length of the rectangle is:
Let the length of the rectangle is x.
Then, 5 : 2 :: x : 9
5 * 9 = 2x
45 = 2x
Divide the above equation by 2 on both sides.
45/2 = 2x/2
22.5 = x

Therefore, the length of the rectangle x is (ii) 22.5 cm;.

Question 13.
The value of m, if 2, 16, m, 40 are in proportion is:
(i) 6; (ii) 4; (iii) 7; (iv) 5

Solution:

Given that the value of m, if 2, 16, m, 40 are in proportion.
If the proportion can be written as a : b :: c : d, a and d are called extreme terms, and b and c are called middle terms.
The extreme terms are in proportion and the middle terms are in proportion.
a : b :: c : d can also write as a * d = b * c.
a = 2, b = 16, c = m, and, d = 40.
40 * 2 = 16m
80 = 16m
Divide the above equation by 16 on both sides.
80/16 = 16m
5 = m

Therefore, the value of m is (iv) 5.

Question 14.
The length and width of a field are in the ratio 7 : 4. If the width of the field is 24 m then its length is:
(i) 100 m; (ii) 80 m; (iii) 28 m; (iv) 70 m

Solution:

Given that the length and breadth of a field are in the ratio 7 : 4. If the width of the field is 24 m then its length is:
Let the length of the field is x.
Then, 7 : 4 :: x : 24
7 * 24 = 6x
168 = 6x
Divide the above equation by 6 on both sides.
168/6 = 6x/6
28 = x

Therefore, the length of the field x is (iii) 28 m.
