1) Sum of the ratio = 3 + 5 = 8
5/8 of x = 315
5x = 315 * 8
5x = 2520
x = 2520/5
= Rs 504
Total money = Rs 504
3/8 * 504 = Rs 189
The smaller part is Rs 189.
2) Sum of the ratio = 4 + 7 = 11
7/11 of x = 595
7x = 595 * 11
7x = 6545
x = 6545/7
x = Rs 935
Total money = Rs 935
3) 8x - 5x = 48
3x = 48
x = 48/3
x = 16
5x = 16 * 5 = 80
8x = 16 * 8 = 128
The 2 numbers are 128 and 80.
4) Sum of the ratios = 5 + 7 + 8 = 20
5/20 of x = 225
5x = 225 * 20
5x = 4500
x = 4500/5
x = Rs 900
Total money = Rs 900
7/20 * 900 =  Rs 315
8/20 * 900 = Rs 360
The total money is Rs 900. The other 2 parts are Rs 315 and Rs 360.
if u find it useful please mark as best!!!
thanx

1)      Smaller : Bigger = 3 : 5            Smaller / Bigger = 3 / 5

Smaller = bigger * 3 / 5 = Rs 315 * 3 / 5 = Rs 189

2)  Mary / Jean = 4 / 7

Mary = Jean * 4 / 7  =  Rs 595 * 4 / 7  = Rs 340

Total = Rs 595 + 340 = Rs 935

3)

4)  P : Q : R  = 5 : 7 : 8          Let P = 5 x    Q = 7 x      R = 8 x
P = 5 x = Rs 225      x = 225/5  = Rs  45
Total = 5x + 7x + 8 x = 20 x = 20 * 45 = Rs 900

sir,in the last,answer, u forgot to find the the value of last 2 parts
