Caroline, Colin & Sarah share some money. Caroline gets 1 9 of the money. Colin and Sarah share the rest in the ratio 3:1. What proportion does Colin get?

If Caroline gets 1/9 of the money......the other two must receive 8/9 of it

 

And if Colin and Sarah share the rest in a 3:1 ratio.....Colin must receive 3/4 of the 8/9

 

So......Colin gets  (3/4) (8/9)  = (3/9)(8/4)  =  (1/3)(2)  =  2/3  of the money
