EXERCISE 26 Page 48
1.
In a box of 333 paper clips, 9 are defective. Express the non-defective paper clips as a ratio of
the defective paper clips, in its simplest form.
Non-defective paper clips = 333 – 9 = 324
The ratio of non-defective clips to defective clips is: 324:9
Dividing both by 9 gives the ratio as: 36:1
2.
A gear wheel having 84 teeth is in mesh with a 24-tooth gear. Determine the gear ratio in its
simplest form.
Gear ratio = 84:24
Dividing both by 4 gives: 21:6

3.
7:2 or
3.5:1
In a box of 2000 nails, 120 are defective. Express the non-defective nails as a ratio of the
defective ones, in its simplest form.
Non-defective nails = 2000 – 120 = 1880
The ratio of non-defective clips to defective clips is: 1880:120
Dividing both by 10 gives the ratio as: 188:12
Dividing both by 4 gives the ratio as: 47:3
4.
A metal pipe 3.36 m long is to be cut into two in the ratio 6 to 15. Calculate the length of each
piece.
Since the ratio is 6:15, the total number of parts is 6 + 15 = 21 parts
88
21 parts corresponds to 3.36 m = 336 cm, hence, 1 part corresponds to
336
= 16
21
Thus, 6 parts corresponds to 6 × 16 = 96 cm
and 15 parts corresponds to 15 × 16 = 240 cm
Hence, 3.36 m divides in the ratio of 6:15 as 96 cm to 240 cm
5.
On the instructions for cooking a turkey it says that it needs to be cooked 45 minutes for every
kilogram. How long will it take to cook a 7 kg turkey?
It takes 45 min for 1 kg of turkey
Hence, for 7 kg, time required = 7 × 45 min = 315 min = 5 h 15 min
6.
In a will, £6440 is to be divided between three beneficiaries in the ratio 4:2:1. Calculate the
Since the ratio is 4:2:1 the total number of parts is 4 + 2 + 1 = 7 parts
7 parts corresponds to £6440
1 part corresponds to
6440
= £920,
7
2 parts corresponds to 2 × £920 = £1840
and 4 parts corresponds to 4 × £920 = £3680
Hence, £6440 divides in the ratio of 4:2:1 as £3680 to £1840 to £920
7.
A local map has a scale of 1:22 500. The distance between two motorways is 2.7 km. How far

8.
Prize money in a lottery totals £3801 and is shared among three winners in the ratio 4:2:1. How
much does the first-prize winner receive?
89
Since the ratio is 4:2:1 the total number of parts is 4 + 2 + 1 = 7 parts
7 parts corresponds to £3801
1 part corresponds to
3801
= £543 and 4 parts corresponds to 4 × £543 = £2172
7
Hence, the first-prize winner receives £2172

Express 130 g as a ratio of 1.95 kg.
Changing both quantities to the same units, i.e. to grams, gives a ratio of: 130:1950
130:1950 ≡ 13:195
Dividing both quantities by 10 gives:
13:195 ≡ 1:15
Dividing both quantities by 13 gives:
Thus, 130 g as a ratio of 1.95 kg is:

In a laboratory, acid and water are mixed in the ratio 2:5. How much acid is needed to make
266 ml of the mixture?
In a ratio of 2:5 there are 2 + 5 = 7 parts
1 part = 266 ml ÷ 7 = 38 ml
Amount of acid in the mixture = 2 parts = 2 × 38 = 76 ml
3.
A glass contains 30 ml of gin, which is 40% alcohol. If 18 ml of water is added and the mixture
stirred, determine the new percentage alcoholic content.
The 30 ml of gin contains 40% alcohol =
40
× 30 = 12 ml
100
After 18 ml of water is added we have 30 + 18 = 48 ml of fluid, of which alcohol is 12 ml
Fraction of alcohol present =

A wooden beam 4 m long weighs 84 kg. Determine the mass of a similar beam that is 60 cm
long.
4 m of beam weighs 84 kg, hence, 1 m of beam = 84 kg ÷ 4 = 21 kg
91
60 cm, i.e. 0.6 m, will weigh 0.6 × 21 = 12.6 kg
5.
An alloy is made up of metals P and Q in the ratio 3.25:1 by mass. How much of P has to be
added to 4.4 kg of Q to make the alloy.
For every 1 part of Q there is 3.25 parts of P
For 4.4 kg of Q, P = 3.25 × 4.4 = 14.3 kg
6.
15 000 kg of a mixture of sand and gravel is 20% sand. Determine the amount of sand that must
be added to produce a mixture with 30% gravel.
Amount of sand in 15 000 kg = 20% of 15 000 kg =
20
×15 000 = 3000 kg
100
If the mixture has 3000 kg of sand, then amount of gravel = 15 000 – 3000 = 12 000 kg
We want this 12 000 kg of gravel to be 30% of the new mixture
1% would be
12 000
12 000
t and 100% of mixture would be
×100 kg = 40 000 kg
30
30
If there is 12 000 kg of gravel then amount of sand = 40 000 – 12 000 = 28 000 kg
We already have 3000 kg of sand, so amount of sand to be added to produce a mixture with 30%
gravel = 28 000 – 3000 = 25 000 kg

and 3 parts is equivalent to 3 × 150 N = 450 N, i.e. the required effort is 450 N
5.
If 16 cans of lager weighs 8.32 kg, what will 28 cans weigh?
If 16 cans of lager weighs 8.32 kg, then 1 can weighs 8.32 kg ÷ 16 = 0.52 kg
Hence, the weight of 28 cans = 28 × 0.52 kg = 14.56 kg

Hooke’s law states that stress is directly proportional to strain within the elastic limit of a
material. When, for copper, the stress is 60 MPa, the strain is 0.000625.
Determine (a) the strain when the stress is 24 MPa and (b) the stress when the strain is 0.0005
93
(a) Stress is directly proportional to strain.
When the stress is 60 MPa, the strain is 0.000625,
hence a stress of 1 MPa corresponds to a strain of
0.000625
60
and the value of strain when the stress is 24 MPa =
0.000625
× 24 = 0.00025

1. Ohm’s law states that current is proportional to p.d. in an electrical circuit. When a p.d. of
60 mV is applied across a circuit a current of 24 µA flows. Determine:
(a) the current flowing when the p.d. is 5 V, and
(b) the p.d. when the current is 10 mA.
(a) Current is directly proportional to the voltage
When p.d. is 60 mV, the current is 24 µA,
hence a p.d. of 1 mV corresponds to a current of
24
µA
60

(b) Voltage is directly proportional to the current
When current is 24 µA, the voltage is 60 mV,
hence a current of 1 A corresponds to a voltage of
60 ×103
= 2.5 kV
24 ×10−6
and when the current is 10 mA, the voltage = 10 ×10−3 × 2.5 kV = 25 V

Number of litres in 35 gallons = 280 ÷ 1.76 = 159.1 litres
(b) 75 litres = 75 × 1.76 pints = 132 pints
132 pints = 132 ÷ 8 gallons = 16.5 gallons
