First you add the ratio  together 3+7=10 Then you do £300 divided by 10 = £30 
Then you do £30 X 3 (from the ratio in the beginning) which equals £90 
Then you do £30 X 7 (also from the ratio in the beginning) which equals £210 
The ratio is £90:£210 
Also you can add the ratios up so that it equals £300 the number you started with 
£90+£210=£300 
Hope I helped :)
