The ratio of the volume of water in Jug A to the volume of water in Jug B is 2:5.
A.) If half of the water in Jug A is poured into Jug B, what is the new ratio of the volumes of water in Jug A to Jug B?
B.) If half of the water in Jug B is poured into Jug A, what is the new ratio of the volumes of water in Jug A to Jug B?
C.) If 1/3 of the water in Jug A is poured into Jug B, what is the new ratio of the volumes of water in Jug A to Jug B?

• Maths -

original in A is 2x
and in B is 5x

A) half of A into B
jug A now has 2x - x = x
jug B now has 5x + x = 6x
new ratio is x : 6x = 1 : 6

B) half of B into A
B has 5x - 5x/2 = 5x/2
A now has 5x + 5x/2 = 5x/2
New ration = 5x/2 : 5x/2 = 1 : 1

Follow my method to do C)
