00:00:00.650 --> 00:00:05.290
The ratio between Mason’s money and Emma’s money is seven to one.
00:00:06.130 --> 00:00:12.660
If the sum of their money is 480 Egyptian pounds, how much money does Mason have?
00:00:13.860 --> 00:00:18.250
We’re told that the ratio of Mason to Emma is seven to one.
00:00:18.670 --> 00:00:24.280
This means that for every one pound that Emma has, Mason has seven pounds.
00:00:25.400 --> 00:00:27.970
Seven plus one is equal to eight.
00:00:28.900 --> 00:00:32.640
This means that there are eight parts to the ratio in total.
00:00:33.810 --> 00:00:38.640
Between them, Mason and Emma had 480 Egyptian pounds.
00:00:38.870 --> 00:00:41.220
We need to divide this by eight.
00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:45.390
48 divided by eight is equal to six.
00:00:45.630 --> 00:00:49.970
Therefore, 480 divided by eight is equal to 60.
00:00:51.090 --> 00:00:55.940
60 Egyptian pounds corresponds to one part of the ratio.
00:00:56.960 --> 00:00:59.460
Mason has seven parts of the ratio.
00:00:59.790 --> 00:01:02.800
Therefore, we need to multiply seven by 60.
00:01:03.790 --> 00:01:07.060
Seven multiplied by six is equal to 42.
00:01:07.470 --> 00:01:12.590
Therefore, seven multiplied by 60 is equal to 420.
00:01:13.720 --> 00:01:20.040
We can therefore conclude that Mason has 420 Egyptian pounds.
00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:23.130
Emma had one part of the ratio.
00:01:23.410 --> 00:01:26.640
Therefore, she has 60 Egyptian pounds.
00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:31.550
420 plus 60 is equal to 480.
00:01:31.880 --> 00:01:36.360
Therefore, they have a sum of 480 Egyptian pounds.
00:01:37.580 --> 00:01:42.920
The correct answer to this question is 420 Egyptian pounds.
