Solution

Ratio of football, cricket and badminton players are 2:3:5

Football players is increased by 250% ,
2 is 100% , so we have to find  100% + 250% = 350% of 2
                                            = 2 * 3.5 =7
Cricket players is increased by 33.33 % ,
3 is 100% , so we have to find  100% + 33.33% = 133.33% of 3
                                            = 3 * 1.33 =3.99 approx 4
Badminton players is increased by 60% ,
5 is 100% , so we have to find  100% + 60% = 160% of 5
                                            = 5 * 1.6 =8
So new ratio is = 7:4:8
