Mass of silver = m g 

Mass of gold = m /100g 

Number of atoms of silver =  Mass/ Atomic mass X N 

                                                   =  m /108NA  

Number of atoms of gold = m/ 100 X197  

Ratio of number of atoms of gold to silver = Au : Ag 

= m/ 100 X 197 X NA : m/ 108 NA

= 108 : 100×197 

= 108 : 19700 

= 1 : 182.41
