# Which Number is the Greater ?

The ratio of two numbers is 3:4 and their sum is 420. The greater of the two number is:

- 75
- 200
- 240
- 315

**Answer:(3) 240**

The ratio of two numbers is 3: 4

Let be the first number is 3x and second number is 4x.

The sum of the numbers = 420

3x + 4x = 420

7x = 420

X = 420/7 = 60, x = 60

Thus, the first number = 3x = 3 x 60 = 180

And second number = 4x = 4 x 60 = **240 Ans.**

**Hence, the greater of two number is 240.**
