COMPOUND RATIO

__Compound Ratio__

**We will call a ratio as a ompound ratio when two or more
given ratios when it’s antecedent is the product of the ANTECEDENTS of the
given ratios, and it’s CONSEQUENT is the product of the consequences of the
given ratios. So the compound ratio of the ratios x : y and a : b is the ratio
ax : by**

**Example–**

**1) The compound ratio of the ratios 5:7 and 4:8 is -**

** (5 X 4) : (7 X 8) = 20 : 56**

**2) The compound ratio of the ratios 8:7 and 3:5 is -**

** (8 X 3) :
(7 X 5) = 24 : 35**
