  1. INITIAL RATIO WAS 2:3:4 IF 12 STDS INCREASED THEN, RATIO BECOME 2X+12:3X+12:4X+12, WHERE X IS TOTAL NO OF STDS. AND INCREASED RATIO IS GIVEN i.e., 8:11:14

    WE HAVE,

    (2X+12) = 8
    ——- —
    (3X+12) 11

    SOLVE IT…

    WE GET X=18

    SUBSTITUTE VALUE OF X IN RATIO 2X:3X:4X
    AND ADD IT YOU WILL GET TOTAL NO OF STUDENTS.
