# Which of the Following Ratio is Greater ? - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Which of the following ratio is greater ?

5/2 : 15/4 and 5/3 : 11/6

#### Solution

5/2 : 15/4 and 5/3 : 11/6

5/2 : 15/4 = 5/2 xx 4/15 = 2/3

5/3 : 11/6 = 5/3 xx 6/11 = 10/11

2/3 : 10/11

⇒ 2 x 11 < 3 x 10

⇒ 22 < 30

⇒ 2: 3 < 10 : 11

⇒ 5/2 : 15/4 < 5/3 : 11/6

5/3 : 11/6  is greater.
