Mehak, Harpreet and Raj planted trees in their school and its neighbourhood during the Vanamahotsav Celebration. They were really very happy and excited to be a part of the celebrations. Mehak planted 18 trees, Harpreet planted 24 trees and Raj planted 32 trees.
(a) What is the ratio of trees planted by Mehak to those planted by Harpreet?
(b) How many more trees should Raj plant so that the ratio of trees planted by Mehak to that of Raj becomes 1 : 2 ? ( i )
(c) How do you celebrate Vanamahotsav in your school? Why should we take care of our environment?


(a) Mehak planted 18 trees, Harpreet planted 24. Ratio is 18:24 = 3:4


(b)No. of trees planted by Mehak =18

No of trees planted by Raj =32

Let Raj plant X trees so the ratio will be 1:2

18 : X = 1 : 2

X= 18x2 

X = 36

More trees to be planted = 36 - 32

= 4
