Two bodies have masses in the ratio 3:1. They experience forces which impart to them acceleration in the ratio 2:9 respectively. Find the ratio of forces the masses experienced.
Let the forces be F1, and F2.
F1 = m1 a1 = 3 x 2 = 6N
F2 = m2 a2 = 1 x 9 = 9N
F1 : F2 = 6:9 = 2:3
Thus ratio of forces is 2: 3

M1=2,A1=3,M2=9,A2=1
Relate them 2gether:
2*3:9*1
=6:9(divide through using their possible smallest integers i.e3 ofcourse)
=2:3 ans.....c
