Problem
Country has of the world's population and of the worlds wealth. Country has of the world's population and of its wealth. Assume that the citizens of share the wealth of equally,and assume that those of share the wealth of equally. Find the ratio of the wealth of a citizen of to the wealth of a citizen of .
Solution
Let be the wealth of the world and be the population of the world. Hence the wealth of each citizen of is . Similarly the wealth of each citizen of is . We divide and see the answer is
