The two numbers are 55 and 33.

Step-by-step explanation:

Ratio  ⇒  5:3

Sum: 88

Common factor: x

Equation:

5x + 3x = 88

8x/8 = 88/8

x = 11

Find the two numbers:

5x ⇒ 5(11) = 55

3x ⇒ 3(11) = 33

The two numbers are 55 and 33.

Check:

55 + 33 = 88

88 = 88 (True)

1)
Sum of the terms of the ratio = 5+3 = 8

Sum of numbers = 80

80/8 = 10 (ratio 1)

first number = 5x10 = 50

second number = 3x10 = 30

The two numbers are 50 and 30.

2)
Sum of the terms of the ratio = 2+7 = 9

Sum of numbers = 180

180/9 = 20

Chairs = 2x20 = 40

Tables = 7x20 = 140

Chairs = 40, Tables = 140

3)
Sum of the terms of the ratio = 2+3 = 5

Sum of numbers = 215

215/5 = 43

Smaller number = 2x43 = 86
Larger number = 3x43 = 129

larger number is 129

1. 5

3. 15

4. 12 buses

5. Di ko po alam

Step-by-step explanation:

1. 9 • 15 = 135

135 ÷ 27 = 5

2. 8 • 12 = 96

96 ÷ 32 = 3

3. 25 • 3 = 75

75 ÷ 5 = 15

4. 2 : 130 = N : 780

780 • 2 = 1,560

1,560 ÷ 130 = 12
