Proportion: 2 : 3

Quantity: 1,500

Solution:

2 + 3 = 5

1500 / 5 = 300 * 2 = 600 (Jone)

1500 / 5 = 300 * 3 = 900 (Nas)

Conclusion:

Jone gets 600 hectares and Nas gets 900 hectares.

...................

Now here's the trick:

Add the numbers in the proportion (ex. 1 : 2 : 3, 1 + 2 + 3 = 6) then identify the quantity being shared (ex. 300) then divide it by 6 (ex. 300/6 = 50) then multiply it on every quantity ( 50 * 1 =

**50**, 50 * 2 =

**100**, and 50 * 3 =

**150**).
