Example
Josh |
Jaz |
For every 2 cars Josh has, Jaz has 3.
For every 4 cars Josh has, Jaz has 6.
Complete:
For every ____ cars Josh has, Jaz has 24.
Answer
We need to work out how many groups of the ratio 2:3 we are dealing with.
In each group, Jaz has 3 cars. So the number of groups is 24 ÷ 3 = 8.
In each group, Josh has 2 cars. So in 8 groups, Josh will have 8 x 2 = 16 cars.
The answer is 16.
