If three children shares N10.50 among themselves in ratio 6:7:8, how much is the largest share?
  • A.
    N3.00
  • B.
    N3.50
  • C.
    N4.00
  • D.
    N4.50
  • E.
    N5.00
Correct Answer: Option C
Explanation

Ratio = 6 + 7 + 8 = 21
21 = N10.50
1 = 1050K/21 = 50K
6 = 6 x 50K = N3.00
7 = 7 x 50K = N3.50
8 = 8 x 50K = N4.00
the Largest share = N4.00
