In the previous segment, we had looked at a few examples of Ratios. In this segment of the
chapter ‘Comparing Quantities’, also we will look at a few examples of ratio.
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?
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
3 × 30
= 1: 3
∴ The ratio of the breadth of the box to its length is 1 : 3.
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?
Distance travelled by Salman on his cycle = 700 m.
