Find the ratio of number of elements in two Arrays from their individual and combined average
• Last Updated : 30 Apr, 2021

Given the average of elements in two arrays as ‘a’ and ‘b’ respectively, and their combined average as ‘c’, the task is to find the ratio of the number of elements in two array.
Examples:

```Input:  a = 2, b = 8, c = 5
Output: 1:1

Input: a = 4, b = 10, c = 6
Output: 2:1```

Approach:

• Let the number of elements in two arrays are respectively x and y.
• So sum of all elements in the combined array is .
• Total number of elements in the combined array is and let .
• So,   So, • Here f is our required answer.

Below is the implementation of the above Approach:

## C++

 `// C++ program to Find the Ratio``// of number of Elements in two Arrays``// from their individual and combined Average` `#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// C++ function to find the ratio``// of number of array elements``void` `FindRatio(``int` `a, ``int` `b, ``int` `c)``{` `    ``int` `up = ``abs``(b - c);``    ``int` `down = ``abs``(c - a);` `    ``// calculating GCD of them``    ``int` `g = __gcd(up, down);` `    ``// make neumarator and``    ``// denominator coprime``    ``up /= g;``    ``down /= g;` `    ``cout << up << ``":"``         ``<< down << ``"\n"``;``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{` `    ``int` `a = 4, b = 10, c = 6;` `    ``FindRatio(a, b, c);` `    ``return` `0;``}`
