# What will be the Third Number? If

The sum of three numbers is 392. If the ratio of first number to second number is 2:3 and the ratio of second number to third number is 5:8 then the third number is

- 176
- 192
- 162
- 120

**Answer: (2) 192**

**Explanation:-
**The ratio of first and second numbers = 2: 3

The ratio of second and third numbers = 5: 8

Then, the ratio of first, second and third numbers = 2 x 5: 3 x 5: 3 x 8

= 10: 15: 24

The sum of the three numbers = 392

Then, 10X + 15X + 24X = 392

59 X = 392

X = 392/59

X = 8

Then, the value of third number is 24X = 24 x 8 = 192

Hence, the answer is (2) 192.
