Example 1
A sports club offers football and basketball for children. For every 5 football players, there are 4 basketball players. In total, there are 108
children doing one of the sports in the club. How many footballers and basket ballers are there in the club?
First we add the two numbers in the ratio (5:4) together. Then we divide this number by the total umber of children in the club (=12). To
identify how many children play each sport, we now have to multiply each number of the original ratio. This gives us the solution. 48
children play basketball and 60 children play football.
