Answer is (D) :twisted:

n = total
t = truck
c = car
p = pickup

n = t + c

c= (1/4)t, so substibute c with (1/4)t above, n = t + (1/4)t = (5/4)t

(2/3)t = p, or t = (3/2)p, so substitute t with (3/2)p above, n = (5/4)(3/2)p

n = (5/4)(3/2)p
n = (15/8)p
(8/15)n = p

Pickup is (8/15)n

D

Cars : Trucks
1 : 4
x : 4x

x+4x = n -> 5x = n -> x = n/5

Trucks = 4n/5
Pickups = 2/3*4n/5 = 8n/15
