in 2001
Car revenue = c
Bikes revenue = b
Total revenue = b+c

in 2002
Car revenue = 0.89c
Bikes revenue = 1.07b
Total revenue = 1.01(b+c)
But new Revenue, 1.01(b+c) = 0.89c+1.07b

i.e. c/b = 1/2

2001: C+B=R
2002: .89C+1.07B=1.01R

Multiple the 2001 equation by 0.89 and then substract it from the second equation to get rid of C.
.18B=.12R
B=2/3R
C=1/3R

The 1 percent up from 2001 is a weighted average between the car and bike sales. Being x the weight of the car sales:

$$0,01 = -0,11x + 0,07(1-x)$$
$$0,01 = -0,11x + 0,07 - 0,07x$$
$$0,06 = 0,18x$$
$$x = 1/3$$

Thus, the weight of the bike sales is $$2/3$$ and the ratio of revenue from car to bikes is $$1:2$$

If we consider total revenue from toy bike sales and toy car sales in 2001 to be 'b' and 'c' respectively.

0.01(b+c)=-0.11c + 0.07b
0.12c=0.06b
c/b=1/2

So ratio of toy car sales to bike sale in 2001 is 1:2.

(B) 2:3
(C) 4:5
(D) 3:2
(E) 7:5

Let C denote the revenue from toy car sales in 2001 and B denote the revenue from toy bike sales in 2001.

We can create the equation:

0.89C + 1.07B = 1.01(C + B)

0.89C + 1.07B = 1.01C + 1.01B

0.06B = 0.12C

0.06/0.12 = C/B

1/2 = C/B
