You mean \(\frac{4}{9}\)

In this case, if the number of cars is \(x\), the number of ferraris is \(\frac{4}{9}*x\)

If the number of ferraris is 4 then \(\frac{4}{9}*x=4\) means that \(x=9\)

So 9 cars in total, so 5 lambos.

Answer D

Hope it is clear.

C. 4 Lamborghinis

E. 9 Lamborghinis


We can create the equation:

F/(F + L) = 4/9

9F = 4F + 4L

5F = 4L

Alternate Solution:

Since the fraction of Ferraris for sale is 4/9 of the total, then the fraction of Lamborghinis for sale is 5/9 of the total. If we were to assume that there were 9 cars for sale, we would see that there were 4
Ferraris and 5 Lamborghinis, with a resulting ratio of 4 to 5.

Answer: D
