1. ## Correct Question :

›»› A number is divided into two parts such that one part is the 10 more than the other. if the two part are in the ratio 5:3, find the number and the two parts.

## ⠀⠀━━━━━━━━━━━━

›»› The number = 40

›»› Two parts = 25 and 15

## Given :

• A number is divided into two parts such that one more than the other if the two parts are in the ratio 5:3.

## To Find :

• The number and the two parts = ?

## Required Solution :

Here in this question we have to find The number and their two parts. And we are provided two parts in the ratio 5:3. So, firstly we have to assume the first number as an variable, accordingly to second number, after that we will find The number and the two numbers on the basis of conditions given above.

### Let ,

The first number be “5x

And, the number part be “3x

As second number is 10 more than the other, so it will be 3x + 10.

→ 5x = 3x + 10

→ 5x – 3x = 10

→ 2x = 10

→ x = 10/2

→ x = 5

### Therefore ,

→ First number = 5x

→ First number = 5 × 5

→ First number = 25

→ Second number = 3x

→ Second number = 3 × 5

→ Second number = 15

→ The number = 25 + 15

→ The number = 40

Hence, the number is 40, and the two numbers is 25 and 15.
