False.

Consider the two ratios 5kg: 7.5kg = Rs 7.50: Rs 5

5/7.5 = 7.50/5

50/75 = 75/50

50/75 is further simplified by dividing both numerator and denominator by 25 we get,

= 2/3

75/50 is further simplified by dividing both numerator and denominator by 2 we get,

= 3/2

Hence, 2/3 ≠ 3/2

Therefore, 5kg: 7.5kg ≠ Rs 7.50: Rs 5
