A 13/49

B 13/36

C 36/49

D 6/7

E 7/6



Given,

7a = 6b

a/b = 6/7.

Again ,

a/7 to b/6

=a/7 * 6/b

=a/b * 6/7

= 6/7 * 6/7

= 36/49.

C is the correct answer.

a=6b/7

a/7/b/6
would be
36/49
IMO C

7 a = 6 b

this implies
\(\frac{a}{b}=\frac{6}{7}\)

We need to find a/7 : b/6

which is equal to \(\frac{a}{7}*\frac{6}{b}\)


OR \(\frac{a}{b}*\frac{6}{7}\)
NOW A/B= 6/7

Put values - \(\frac{6}{7}*\frac{6}{7}\)

\(=\frac{36}{49}\)

Hence c[m]
