## Answers

100 square meter of land shall be divided among three people. anna=½ , joy=⅜ , john=¾. determine the...

First, add the ratio of each of the 3 people.

Anna = 1/2

Joy = 3/8

John = 3/4

1/2 + 3/8 + 3/4 = 4/8 + 3/8 + 6/8

= 13/8

Now we need to get the multiplier. Divide 13/8 to the total number of square meter of land that the 3 people will share. It is already given that there are 100 square meters of land. So:

100 ÷ 13/8 = 100 × 8/13 = 800/13

800/13 will be our multiplier. Multiply this to each of the three people.

Anna = 1/2 × 800/13 = 400/13 or approximately 30.7692 square meters

Joy = 3/8 × 800/13 = 300/13 or approximately 23.0769 square meters

John = 3/4 × 800/13 = 600/13 or approximately 46.1538 square meters

answer:

improper fraction: 19/3

whole fraction: 6 1/3
