For every 2 cars Josh has, Jaz has 3.

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.
