In partitive proportion, there is a relationship between the ratio, for example:
3:5

To solve partitive proportion, first you must add 3 and 5 to a total, but if you are going to add both of them, you will put x on it, so that it can balance the relationship.

Example:
A piece of wood was in the length of 204, with a ratio of 1:5. Find the measurements.

First add them, then place x or n or any variable.

1x+5x=204

Then add all terms

6x=204
Divide both sides by 6

x=34

Substitute the value:
34:170

then simplify
1:5

Hope this helps =)
