00:00:01.820 --> 00:00:06.250
The ratio of the height of Michael to that of Daniel is three to one.
00:00:06.850 --> 00:00:11.500
And the ratio of the height of Daniel to that of Jacob is two to five.
00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:15.830
Find the ratio of the height of Michael to that of Jacob.
00:00:17.800 --> 00:00:23.160
We are told in the question that the ratio of the height of Michael to Daniel is three to one.
00:00:24.790 --> 00:00:30.030
We are also told that the ratio of the height of Daniel to Jacob is two to five.
00:00:31.390 --> 00:00:36.070
We’ve been asked to calculate the ratio of the height of Michael to Jacob.
00:00:37.440 --> 00:00:45.750
Daniel is involved in both of the ratios that we know, one part in the first ratio and two parts in the second ratio.
00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:52.840
If we multiply the ratio three to one by two, we get the ratio six to two.
00:00:53.450 --> 00:00:58.420
Remember, with ratios, whatever you do to the left-hand side, you must do to the right-hand side.
00:00:59.770 --> 00:01:05.020
We could therefore say that the ratio of Michael’s height to Daniel’s height is six to two.
00:01:06.300 --> 00:01:11.440
We also know that the ratio of Daniel’s height to Jacob’s height is two to five.
00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:20.280
We now know that, for every two units of height of Daniel, Michael has six units and Jacob has five units.
00:01:21.340 --> 00:01:26.880
This means that the ratio of heights of Michael to Jacob must be six to five.
00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:39.810
If the ratio of height of Michael to Daniel is three to one and Daniel to Jacob is two to five, then the ratio of height of Michael to Jacob is six to five.
