3 boys share 100 in the ratio 1:2:2. how much each boy will get?

Given the ratio 1 : 2 : 2, calculate the expected number of items from a population of 100

A ratio of 1 : 2 : 2 means that for every of item A, we can expect 2 of item B and 2 of item c
Therefore, our total group is 1 + 2 + 2 = 5

Calculate Expected Number of Item A:
Expected Number of Item A = 1 x 100/5

Expected Number of Item A = 100/5

Using our GCF Calculator, we see this fraction can be reduced by 5
Expected Number of Item A = 20/1
Expected Number of Item A = 20

Calculate Expected Number of Item B:
Expected Number of Item B = 2 x 100/5

Expected Number of Item B = 200/5

Using our GCF Calculator, we see this fraction can be reduced by 5
Expected Number of Item B = 40/1
Expected Number of Item B = 40

Calculate Expected Number of Item C:
Expected Number of Item C = 2 x 100/5

Expected Number of Item C = 200/5

Using our GCF Calculator, we see this fraction can be reduced by 5
Expected Number of Item C = 40/1
Expected Number of Item C = 40

Final Answer:
(A, B, C) = (20, 40, 40) for 1:2:2 on 100 people
