Say John and michael were given 10 sweets to split in half. Each would get half of the sweets so both would have 5 sweets. The ratio of sweets each would be 5:5 or simplified, this is 1:1 ratio.

One sweet would cost 10p and so 7 sweets would cost 7 times 10 = 70p

The answer is 2 sweets. For this you must divide 10 by 5 to find what 1/5 is and this is your answer.

2:4

23 sweets to begin with because after she gave Bill 5 she had 3/3 left and gave 1/3 away leaviing her with 12 and 2/3 of a number that equals 12 is 18 So 3/3 which is 18 sweets plus 5 sweets = 23 sweets Let N = original number of sweets. Then (n-5) -(n-5)/3 =12 (given). Multilply equation by 3 3(n-5) -(n-5) =36 Simplify 2(n-5) =36 Solve 2n=36+10 n=23
