Examples of partitive proportion with soullution

Answers

In partitive proportion, there is a relationship between the ratio, for example:
3:5

To solve partitive proportion, first you must add 3 and 5 to a total, but if you are going to add both of them, you will put x on it, so that it can balance the relationship.

Example:
A piece of wood was in the length of 204, with a ratio of 1:5. Find the measurements.

First add them, then place x or n or any variable.

1x+5x=204

Then add all terms

6x=204
Divide both sides by 6

x=34

Substitute the value:
34:170

then simplify
1:5

Hope this helps =)
Example:
1:2:5=312
solutions:
1+2+5=8
312÷8=39
39×1=39
39×2=78
39×5=195

39:78:195

answer:

partitive proportion, or proportion by parts, describes a whole amount being divided or distributed into two or more unequal parts. Example: The ratio of boys to girls in a class is 3:5. If there are 48 students in the class, how many boys and girls are there?
