Tareq and Hassan find a bag of marbles that they shared between them in the ratio of their ages. Tareq is 10 years old and Hassan is 15 years old. what fraction of the marble did Tareq get?​


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Their ages are in the ratio,
    = 10:15
    = 2:3
    So for every TWO marbles that Tareq gets, Hassan gets THREE marbles.
    That’s a total of FIVE marbles split between them. Every handful of 5, Tareq gets 2 (and Hassan gets 3)
    Tareq gets 2 out of 5 marbles.
    Tareq gets 2/5 of the marbles.
