hi steve b mandy here sorry it is a bit later then i said? can you send me a mixture of question to do please? hope you are ok?
Karen and Lisa have earned £400 in total.
It is to be split into a ratio as follows:
Karen gets £2 for every £3 Lisa gets given.
That is to say a 2 : 3 ratio.
How much is Lisa paid ?
hi steve b send me the question and i will have them done for you tomorrow ok?
That was one to try I can make up a few more a bit later and send them by email.
hi steve is the answer(c) 200 am i right
No that is not the right answer. What was your method for that ?

hi steve b can you should me what to do then?
I was hoping for this method:
(1) First divide the total of £400 into 5 equal parts. £400 / 5 = £80
(2) Then give 3 of them to Lisa: £80 x 3 = £240
Notice that Karen gets £160, and that £160 + £240 = £400
This is a useful checking method for ratio questions.
ok do you have aother that i can try please?
Try splitting £400 into a 3:1 ratio
How much does each person get ?
Let us say that Gary has the 3 and Mike has the 1 in this case.

400 / 4 = 100
300 x 1 = 300
am i right or not
Yes provided you get them the right way round that is correct. In a real question you would have to give the
named people if the question asked this. In a real question the English would be clearer - I wrote that in a rush....
Another one before I forget it £210 is to be split into a 2:5 ratio.
The five parts are to go to Peter and two parts of it are to go to John.
How much does John get given ?
How much does Peter get given ?

210 / 5 = 42
42 x 5 = 210 is peter
42 x 2 = 84 is john
am i right or not?
Now look at what you have written and do this: Add together the two amounts - do they add up to £210 ?
