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?

Colin and Sarah must have  1 - 1/9   =   8/9  of the money

 

And Colin  has  3 / [ 3 + 1 ]  =  3/4   of this

 

So.....the proportion that Colin gets  is

 

8/9  *  3/4   =  

 

24/36   =

 

2/3
