Section A = 12 minutes;
Section B = Section C = 24 minutes (12+24+24=60 minutes).

C/A=24/12=2/1.

The wording can be a bit tricky because at first when I read it, I understood that A=12 mins, B+C=12 mins. But then again A+B+C must equal 60 mins. Therefore, 60-A= 60-12=48. We know that B+C=48 and that B=C ---->each is 24.

Here's how my brain handled this one,

Step 1 --> Set up the equation.

A + B + C = Total

Based off the question we can infer the following,

B + C = 60 - 12 = 48, thus B = 24, C = 24.

12 minutes is given to us, and we know 60 minutes are in an hour.

So... 12 + 24 + 24 = 60.

Step 2 --> Use data to relate to what the question is looking for.

They are asking for the ratio of C to A. When we think ratio, think first term as a numerator, second term as denominator. So in this case C/A (C:A), or 24/12 (24/12) which simplifies to 2/1 (or 2:1).
