In Quant resources on this site , here's a ratio problem and its solution :-
If 5x = 6y and xy ? 0, what is the ratio of to x/5 to x/6?
First, find the ratio of x to y; it will be x/y = 6/5, we get that from 5x=6y.
The easiest here would be to pick numbers. This will keep the brain in one piece. Let's say x=12 and y=10; this fits our condition: 5x12=6x10.
Now, let's combine the ratio and the values we have for x and y:
(12/5) / (10/6) = 12/5 * 6/10 = 36/25
This is the final answer.
Didn't the question ask for x/5 to x/6... Haha wouldnt that just be 6/5 ??]
I dont mean to nitpick....
