Hi
from stem c-a=2c-2b then 2b-a=c substitute for c in denominator of the problem and you will get it.
Hope it helps

Thanks.

I ended up plugging in the choices for this one. I guess I was thinking too difficult.

Answer : 2.5

(c-a ) = 2( c-b)

simplifying

c =2b-a

subsitituting this in 5b-5a / c-a

5/2 ( 1) = 2.5

it's E bro.

inverse the equation:
(c-b) / (c-a) = 1/2
Then solve for c in terms of a and b
c-a = 2c-2b
c = 2b-a
Plug in c for the inversed equation
(2b-a-b) / (c-a) = 1/2
(b-a) / (c-a) = 1/2
(5b-5a) / (c-a) = 5/2 = 2.5
