1) 27 1/2 = 55/2
2 1/2 = 5/2
55/2 : 5/2
55 : 5
11 ; 1
The ratio of tin to alloy is 1 : 11
2) We can do this by finding percentage:
35/50 * 100
= 70%
29/40 * 100
= 72.5%
Karim performed better in Science.
3) Sum of the ratios = 2 + 3 + 4 = 9
2 yr old share = 2/9 * 90 = Rs 20
3 yr old share = 3/9 * 90 = Rs 30
4 yr old share = 4/9 * 90 = Rs 40
4) 1/4 : 2/5 : 11/8
LCM = 40
10/40 : 16/40 : 55/40
10 : 16 : 55
Sum of the Ratios = 10 + 16 + 55 = 81
10/81 * 810 = Rs 100
16/81 * 810 = Rs 160
55/81 * 810 = Rs 550
5) A:B = 4:5
B:C = 9:13
A/B = 4/5 - (1)
B/C = 9/13
B = 9/13 * C
For - (1) Substitute the value for B
A / 9/13 * C = 4/5
A/C = 4/5 * 9/13
= 36/65
A:C = 36 : 65
6) A:C = 2:3
B:C = 5:6
A/C = 2/3 - (1)
B/C = 5/6
C = 5/6 * B
For - (1) Substitute the value for C
A / 5/6 * B = 2/3
A/B = 2/3 * 5/6
10/18 = 5/9
A:B = 5 : 9
If it was useful please mark as best

### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1)  Ratio by weight of Tin to Alloy =

2) Ratio of marks in English = 35/50 = 7/10
Ratio of marks in Science = 29/40

Ratio of marks in Science - Ratio of marks in English =

So Marks in Science are more. He performed better in Science.

3) Divide Rs 90 by the ratio 2 : 3 : 4
The first child gets an amount =
The second child gets an amount =
The third child gets an amount =

4)

5) A : B = 4 : 5 and B: C = 9 : 13

6) A:C = 2 : 3    B  : C = 5 : 6
