If $936 are divided between worker A and worker B in the ratio 5: 7,what is the share that worker B will get?
The ratio a:b is 5:7, and therefore the share of B will be b/(a+b) or 7/(5+7). The solutions talk about percentages, so there is no need to multiply by the amount - $936 -, but this could be a different or potential question. Remember always that the share of a is a/(a+b) and the share of b is b/(a+b).
