# Find the ratio of:

(a) ₹ 5 to 50 paise

(b) 15 kg to 210 g

(c) 9 m to 27 cm

(d) 30 days to 36 hours

**Solution:**

To find the ratio it is very important for both numerator and denominator to have the same unit.

(a) ₹ 5 to 50 paise

Since, 1 rupee = 100 paise

So, 5 rupees = 100 × 5

= 500 paise

Therefore the ratio = 500 / 50

= 10/1 or 10:1

(b) 15 kg to 210 g

Since, 1 kg = 1000 grams

So, 15 kg = 1000 × 15

= 15000 grams

Therefore the ratio = 15000/210

= 500/7

= 500 : 7

(c) 9 m to 27 cm

1 m = 100 cm

So, 9 m = 100 × 9

= 900 cm

Thus, ratio = 900/27

= 100/3 or 100 : 3

(d) 30 days to 36 hours

Since, 1 day = 24 hours

So, 30days = 24 × 30

= 720 hours

So, ratio = 720/36

= 20/1 or 20 : 1
