Solution

Old Ratio (X, Y and Z) = 5 : 3 : 2

New Ratio (X, Y and Z) = 5 : 2 : 3

Sacrificing (or Gaining) Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

X's share = `5/10 - 5/10 = "Nil"`

Y's share = `3/10 - 2/10 = 1/10` (sacrifice)

Z's share = `2/10 - 3/10 = (-1)/10` (gain)

∴ Z’s Gain = 1/10

Y’s Sacrifice = 1/10
