Hippo gets

Sharing in a Given Ratio

Discuss the problem of using this method if Snoopy and Hippo had to share (the very nice) bar of chocolate below in the ratio 3 : 2.

5 x 16 = 80

So this method is not efficient when the quantity to be shared is large and/or the ratios are small. A more efficient method is desirable.

This can be achieved by considering what proportion/fraction of the whole bar they will each receive. In this example we can think of the bar as being divided into 5 parts.

Snoopy will get 3 out of 5 parts and Hippo will get 2 out 5 parts.

Check: 48 + 32 = 80 
