  • question_answer If A : B = 2 : 3, B : C = 4: 5 and C : D = 6 : 7, then A : D = _____.

    A) 2 : 7                

    B)          16 : 35      

    C) 4 : 13              

    D)          7 : 8       

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

     \[\frac{A}{B}=\frac{2}{3},\,\frac{B}{C}=\frac{4}{5},\,\frac{C}{D}=\frac{6}{7}\] From 2nd and 3rd expression we have \[A=\frac{2}{3}\,B,\,B=\frac{4}{5},\,C=\frac{6}{7}D\] \[B=\frac{4}{5}\times \frac{6}{7}D\] \[A=\frac{2}{3}\times \,\frac{4}{5}\times \frac{6}{7}D\] \[\frac{A}{D}=\frac{2}{\bcancel{3}}\times \frac{4}{5}\,\times \frac{{{\bcancel{6}}^{2}}}{7}=\frac{16}{35}\]
