At a supermarket, the ratio of the number of shampoos to the number of soaps is 8 to 5, and the ratio of the number of drinks to the number of shampoos is 3 to 4. If the ratio of the soaps to the number of cereals is 9 to 2, what is the ratio of the number of drinks to the number of cereals?
A. 4:3
B. 15:6
C. 45:16
D. 15:4
E. 27:5
Shampoos : Soaps = 8 : 5
Drinks : shampoos = 3 : 4
Shampoos : Soaps : Drinks = 8 : 5 : 6
Soaps: cereals = 9 : 2
So, Shampoos : Soaps : Drinks : Cereals = 72 : 45 : 54 : 10
So, Ratio of drinks : Cereals = 54 : 10
Or, Ratio of drinks : Cereals = 27 : 5
Answer must be (E)Shampoos : Soaps = 8 : 5
- clearDrinks : shampoos = 3 : 4 - clear
Shampoos : Soaps : Drinks = 8 : 5 : 6
(- 6 because you lift up Drinks : Shampoo from 3:4 auf 6:8 ?)Soaps: cereals = 9 : 2
- clearSo, Shampoos : Soaps : Drinks : Cereals = 72 : 45 : 54 : 10
- (what are you doing here? Multiplication with what? What is the logic behind that?)So, Ratio of drinks : Cereals = 54 : 10
Or, Ratio of drinks : Cereals = 27 : 5
Thank you for your support, but it seems I have a complete blackout in this case.
