# Aland area was divided among the three heirs in the ratio 5: 2: 4,if the largest share was 20 hectares of land, what is the total amount?

The total island of a land is 44 because 5 : 2 : 4 is equal to 20 : 4 : 16

The simplest whole number ratio given was 5:2:4. The largest share was 20 hectares, which means it was the 5 in the ratio. Divide 20 by 5 and you will get 4, which means the other two must also be multiplied by 4 to get the real size of the share.

2 x 4 = 8 hectares

4 x 4 = 16 hectares

20 + 8 + 16 = 44 hectares of land

Hope this helps! ^v^

5:2:4= 20 hectares

5+2+4= 11

20/11= 1.82

5(1.82)+ 2(1.82) + 4(1.82)=

9.1 + 3.64 + 7.28= 20.02

= 20

44 hectares

Step-by-step explanation:

5:2:4

20:?:?

20 divided by 5 = 4

4*2=8

4*4=16

20:8:16

20+8+16=44

so the total hectares is 44 hectares

44 hectares

Step-by-step explanation:

The ratio is 5:2:4

In which 5 is the largest that is equal to 20 hectares.

Divide 20 by 5 and you will get 4

Multiply 4 by 2 (2nd number in the given ratio), the product will be 8.

Next, multiply 4 by 4 (3rd number in the given ratio), the answer is 16.

Add the three (20 + 8 + 16)

The final answer is 44 hectares.

44 hectares...
44 hectares
