Given a:b and b:c. The task is to write a program to find ratio a:b:c**Examples:**

Input:a:b = 2:3, b:c = 3:4Output:2:3:4Input:a:b = 3:4, b:c = 8:9Output:6:8:9

**Approach:** The trick is to make the common term ‘b’ equal in both ratios. Therefore, multiply the first ratio by b_{2} (b term of second ratio) and the second ratio by b_{1}.

Given:a:b_{1}and b_{2}:cSolution:a:b:c = (a*b_{2}):(b_{1}*b_{2}):(c*b_{1})For example:

If a : b = 5 : 9 and b : c = 7 : 4, then find a : b : c.Solution:

Here, Make the common term ‘b’ equal in both ratios.

Therefore, multiply the first ratio by 7 and the second ratio by 9.

So, a : b = 35 : 63 and b : c = 63 : 36

Thus, a : b : c = 35 : 63 : 36

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
