Easiest way to divide any given quantity into ratio

Hello beautiful people. I hope you're all doing great. Today I am going to share with you all the easiest way to divide any given quantity into a ratio or any quantity into given ratios.


I've learned this from my accounts teacher, we all know its very time consuming to divide any given amount or quantity into given ratios. So to make it easy there is a simple way to do it. Let's first see what the standard method to divide any given amount into ratio is.

Basic Method To Divide Any Amount Into Given Ratio

Say if I tell you to divide $30000 in the ratios 3:2:1, how you will divide this.

I know you will divide $30000 in the ratio 3:2:1 by following these steps:
  • By taking the sum of this ratio i.e. (3+2+1)= 6 
  • Then you will divide $30000 in this manner i.e. 3/6 *30000, 2/6*30000, 1/6*30000 
  • This will give you an answer 15000, 10000, 5000. 
Now if you will see this, we first added the ratios, then divided the quantity by using the basic method. Now let's check the easiest way to do this which will also save some time of yours.

Easy Way To Divide The Quantity Into Given Ratio

Let us take the same example and start our calculation.

Amount= $30000
Ratio= 3:2:1

So let's get started 

  • Take the sum of the ratios as we did earlier i.e(3+2+1)= 6
  • Now divide 30000 by 6 i.e(30000/6= 5000)
  • Multiply the above give answer i.e 5000 with the given ratios which will you (5000*3 = 15000); (5000*2= 10000); (5000*1= 5000)

Answer : 15000, 10000, 5000.

So which method you felt like the simplest one. I am sure the second one. So just use this simple method and save your time.
