# In a year, Seema earns ₹ 1,50,000 and saves ₹ 50,000. Find the ratio of

(a) Money that Seema earns to the money she saves.

(b) Money that she saves to the money she spends.

**Solution:**

Money earned by Seema in a year = ₹ 1,50,000

Money saved by Seema in a year = ₹ 50,000

Money spent by Seema in a year = Money earned by Seema - Money saved by Seema

= ₹ 150000 – ₹ 50000

= ₹ 100000

(a) Ratio of money that Seema earns to the money she saves = Money earned by Seema / Money saved by Seema

= 150000 / 50000

= 15 / 5

= 3 / 1

Therefore, the ratio of money that Seema earns to the money she saves is 3 :1.

(b) Ratio o money that Seema saves to the money she spends = Money saved by Seema / Money spent by Seema

= 50000 / 100000

= 5 / 10

= 1 / 2

Therefore, the ratio of money that Seema saves to the money she spends is 1 : 2.
