    Problem 1

    A rectangular box is 9 cm in length and 30 mm in breadth. What is the ratio of the breadth of the box to its length?

    Solution:

    Breadth of the box = 30 mm

    Length of the box = 9 cm = 9 x 10 mm = 90 mm

    ∴ The ratio of the breadth of the box to its length = \[30:90\]

    30

    =

    90

    30

    =

    3 × 30

    1

    =

    3

    = 1: 3

    ∴ The ratio of the breadth of the box to its length is 1 : 3.

    Problem 2

    Salman travelled 2 km on his motorcycle and 700 m on his cycle. What is the ratio of the distance travelled by Salman on his motorcycle to the distance he travelled on his cycle?

    Solution:

    Distance travelled by Salman on his cycle = 700 m.

    Distance travelled by Salman on his motorcycle = 2 km = 2 x 1000 m = 2000 m.
