Answer:Kyaaapsnàpchàtusekartiho...Answer:let the three numbers be x,y,z

sum of the three numbers

x+y+z = 4917

their ratios x:y:z = 3⅓ : 4⅕ : 6⅛

converting into improper fractions

x:y:z = 10/3 : 21/5 : 49/8

they all should have a common factor. let it be k

x = 10/3 k

y = 21/5 k

z = 49/8 k

substituting

10/3 k + 21/5 k + 49/8 k = 4917

400k + 504k + 735k / 120 = 4917

1639k / 120 = 4917

k = 3×120

k = 360

applying the values

x = 10/3 × 360

x = 1200

y = 21/5 × 360

y = 1512

z = 49/8 × 360

z = 2205

so the numbers are 1200, 1512, 2205
