m=10n
n=5p
replacing values in m/(n + p)
10*5p/(5p+p)=25/3
option B

m/n=10
m= 10n

n/p = 5
p = n/5

m/(n+p) = 10n/(n+n/5) = 10n/( 6n/5) = 50/6 = 25/3

$$\frac{n}{p}$$ = 5

$$\frac{n}{(n+p)}$$ = $$\frac{5}{6}$$

Multiply both ratios:

$$\frac{n}{(n+p)}$$*$$\frac{m}{n}$$ = $$\frac{m}{(n+p)}$$ = $$\frac{5}{6}$$* 10 = $$\frac{25}{3}$$

From the given details put all values in common term I.e. say “n” so m=10 n and p =n/5 and put in required expression
=10n/(n+n/5)
=10*5/(5+1)
=50/6
=25/3

m/n = 10 = 20/2 = 30/3 = 40/4 = 50/5

n/p = 5/1

i.e. when n = 5, p = 1 and m = 50 hence

m/(n+p) = 50/(5+1) = 50/6 = 25/3
