    1:3:1 means 5 parts in total.

    1 part Angad

    3 parts Malachy

    1 part Jim.

    £30 ÷ 5 parts = £6 a part.

    So

    £6 Angad

    £18 Malachy

    £6 Jim

    Angad, Malachy and Jim share £30 in a ratio 1 : 3 : 1.

    How much money does each person get?

    Angad gets £6, Malachy gets £18 and Jim gets £6.

    A trick with ratios is to add them up, so you can find the number of parts. After that you just divide the total into parts:

    Angad : Malachy : Jim

    1: 3 : 1

    1 + 3 + 1 = 5 parts.

    1 part = 30/5 = £6

    3 parts = 3 x 6 = £18

    Angad = £6

    Malachy = 3 x 6 = £18

    Jim = £6

    Please give extra money to the first two, so they can change their names.

    It would be x + 3x + x = 30

    5x = 30

    x = 6

    20%:60%:20% == 1:3:1 do you see it? The ratios add up to 5 so multiply them all by 2 to get ten or (100%). So the answer is: 6:18:6 pounds in order.

    Six pounds, eighteen pounds, and six pounds.

    Peace.
