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 =
