    We are given : Jayden and Ava share a reward of $35 in a ratio of 2 : 3.

    Total amount is $35.

    We need to divide it in 2:3 ratio.

    2:3 ratio represents 2 parts for Jayden and 3 parts for Ava of the total $35.

    2 and 3 make total 5 part.

    5 parts make $35.

    1 part = 35/5 = $7.

    Jayden should have 2 parts = 2* 7 = $14.

    Ava should have 3 parts = 3 * 7 = $21.

    Ava got total $21.

    Now, we need to check $21 is what fraction of the total $35.

    21/35 can be reduced into fraction 3/5.

    Therefore, Ava get 3/5 of the $35.
