There are two solutions to this problem, either:  1: Isha has the bigger part (:3)  2: or Isha has the smaller part (2:) 1. Isha = 3x = 600 solve for x: x = 600/3 = 200 Then Roger has 2x = 2*200 = 400 600:400 6:4 3:2 the ratio complies, Isha has 600 and Roger 400 2. Isha = 2x = 600 x = 300 Roger = 3x = 3*300 = 900 600:900 6:9 2:3 the ratio complies, Isha has 600 and Roger 900
