### Ratio Examples

**Example1: A Recipe for halwa uses 5 cups of grame flour and 3 cups of water. Find the ratio of the recipe.**

So the ratio of grame flour to water is 5 : 3

**Example2: In a classroom of 30 students, 14 are girls and the remaining are boys. Find the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls.**

Total number of students in classroom = 30; Number of girls in classroom = 14.

Total number of boys = Total number of students in classroom – Total number of girls in classroom

= 30 – 14

= 16

Therefore, the desired ratio is, (Number of boys: Number of girls), which is 16:14.

so the ratio is : 8:7
