The ratio of the 3 golden

stars is 12:2:6 . If the total


measure of 3 stars is 1000
cm . What is the measure of
the biggest golden star?
Ratio = 12:2:6
Measurement =1000 cm
Biggest Star= 12
12x + 2x + 6x = 1000
20x=1000
*Divide both sides by 20*
20x = 1000
20 20
X = 50
*Multiply x from 12 because 12 is the biggest among
the 3 stars*
12 (50) = 600
Answer: 600 cm
The measure of the biggest star is 600 cm.
There are 450 professors in
the Harvard University. The
ratio of boy to girl
professors is 3:7
respectively. What is the
total number of both boy
and girl professors?
Ratio= 3 (boys) : 7 (girls)
Total Population= 450
3x + 7x = 450
10x = 450
*Divide both sides by 10*
10x = 450
10 10
X= 45
*Multiply the x to the ratio of professors*
45 (3) “Boys” = 135 45 (7) “Girls” = 315
Answer: Boys(135) Girls (315)
There are 135 boy professors and 315 girl professors at the
Harvard University.
The ratio of the measure of
the House A and B is 8:12
respectively. If the House A
has a measure of 500 m2.
What is the measure of the
House B?
House A=8,500 m2
House B=12, ?
Let ? be X
8 = 500
12= X
*Cross Multiplication*
8x = 6000
*Divide both sides by 8*
X = 750
Answer: 750 m2
The measure of House B is 750 m2
