If 348 pounds are distributed among Hazem and Ahmed according to the ratio , determine the share of each one of them.
We can use the concept of "the sum of parts" to solve this problem.
The ratio of Hazem's share : Ahmed's share is 1 : 2. So, the sum of parts = 1 + 2 = 3 equal parts.
Since 3 parts = 348 pounds, then one part = 348 3 = 116 pounds.
To find the share of each person, multiply the number of parts for that person by the value of one part.
