# 20 balloons have to be divided among between group a and group b inthe ratio 2:3. how many ballons will each group recieve?

The answer is 8 and 12

a = 8, b = 12

8:12

You only need to ask your question once. otherwise you loose points.

20/5 = 4

4 x 2 : 4 x 3

a gets 8, b gets 12

5________1________2_______3

20_______4________8_______12

Ratio is 8 : 12

Let 2k be the number of balloons for group A.

Let 3k be the number of balloons for group B.

2k + 3k = 20

5k = 20

k = 4

So the answer is easy:

Group A has 2*4 = 8 balloons

Group B has 3*4 = 12 balloons

20 balloons have to be divided between group a and group b in the ratio 2 : 3.

Group a will receive 8 balloons and group b will receive 12 balloons.

See a doctor

group a gets 8 balloons

group b gets 12 balloons.
