How to find duplicate ratio?
A ratio is a comparison of the sizes of two or more quantities of the same kind by division.
If p and q are two quantities of the same kind, then the fraction p/q is called the ratio of p to q.
The quantities p and q are called terms of the ratio.
Properties of Ratio:
The duplicate ratio of a : b is a² : b²
If 2s : 3t is the duplicate ratio of 2s – p : 3t – p then …?
Option (A) : p² = 6st
Option (B) : p = 6st
Option (C) : 2p = 3st
Option (D) : None of these
