There are 10 total shares.

So, if there are x mangoes in all, we have

To find the total number of mangos shared, we first need to determine the value of the ratio.

Let's assume the total number of mangos shared by the three sisters is x.

According to the given information, the ratio of mangos shared is 5:3:2.

So, the three sisters will receive 5x/10, 3x/10, and 2x/10 mangos, respectively.

We are also given that the sister with the smallest ratio received 25 mangos.

Let's set up an equation to solve for x:

2x/10 = 25

To isolate x, we can multiply both sides of the equation by 10:

2x = 25 * 10

2x = 250

Divide both sides of the equation by 2:

x = 250/2

x = 125

Therefore, the total number of mangos shared among the three sisters is 125.
