11.
The salaries A, B, C are in the ratio 2 : 3 : 5. If the increments of 15%, 10% and 20% are allowed respectively in their salaries, then what will be new ratio of their salaries?
3 : 3 : 10
10 : 11 : 20
23 : 33 : 60
Cannot be determined
Explanation:

Let A = 2k, B = 3k and C = 5k.

 A's new salary = 115 of 2k = 115 x 2k = 23k 100 100 10

 B's new salary = 110 of 3k = 110 x 3k = 33k 100 100 10

 C's new salary = 120 of 5k = 120 x 5k = 6k 100 100 New ratio 23k : 33k : 6k = 23 : 33 : 60 10 10

@All.

A:B:C
2:3:5.

Increments are 15%, 10%, 20% Happen
So we have to find out their new salaries,
A= (2 * 0.15)=0.3 So add this in first ratio.
Then 2+0.3=2.3
Similarly B = (3 * 0.1)=0.3,
B = 3+0.3=3.3,
C =( 5 * 0.2)=1,
C = 5+1,
So the Ratios are now 2.3 : 3.3 : 6,
After multiplying with 100 in each;
= 23:33:60.

115/100*20:110/100*30:120/100*50.
= 23:33:60.

Here 2=20 and 3=30 and 5=50.

How 23/10:33/10:6 = 23:33:60?

Chandan shil said:   5 years ago
115*2/10=23,
110*3/10=33,
120*5/10=60.

So, 23:33:60.

2*1.15, 3*1.1,5*1.2.
2.3, 3.3, 6
23, 33, 60.

Can anyone tell me how you can solve 23k/10 : 33k/10 : 6x into 23k : 33k :6k?

@Abhinav Kumar.

Why the 10 and x gets cancelled in above question of Ratio and Proportion?

20*115/100 = 23,
30*110/100 = 33,
20*120/100 = 60.

23 : 33 : 60.

It can be solve in ay method:

2 * 115 : 3 * 11 : 5 * 120.
= 2 * 23 : 3 * 22 : 5 * 24.
= 23 : 33 : 60.
