Let 1 part is x and it is bigger  and other y so by  statm 1 we get x=y+10
by 2 stsm x/y=5/3 so 3x=5y by solving 1 and 2 equa we get..y=15 so x=25
so no r 25 and 15
10 3 10

A number is divided in to two parts such that one part is 10 more than the other. If the two parts are in the ratio 5:3, find the number and the two parts.

solution:
       let one part of number = x
           therefore ,  other part of number = x+10
   according to question ,
             x+10/x=5/3
           3(x+10)= 5x
           3x+30 =5x
             30 = 5x -3x
             30 = 2x
     or x=30/2
         x=15

therefore one part of number = 15
and other part = 15+10 =25

hence number = 15+25 =40

hope this helps you!!!
