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.

## 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.
