A number isdivided intotwo parts such that one part is 10 mire than the other if the two parts are in the ratio 5:3 find the number and two oatts



      let the parts of the number be 5x and 3x .
      therefore Number = 5x+3x =8x
     therefore ,
            5x = 3x+10 (One part is nore than another by 10 (given))
       or 5x - 3x =10
or 2x =10
or x = 5 .

hence parts of a number are 5x =5*5 = 25 
and 3x= 3*5 = 15 
hence Number =8x =8*5 =40
Hope this helps you!!
Thank You!!!
