a. Teachers : Students = Tm:Sm. and Tp:Sp. Sm:Sp = ? (asked)

now, Sm-Sp = 1000 means Sm: (1000-Sm) = not known, Hence not sufficient.

b Tm:Sm = Tp:Sp = 1:20 gives nothing for Sm:Sp. Not sufficient.

a+b Tm:Sm = 1/20 Tp:(1000-Sm) = 1/20 gives not relative information between Tp Tm and Sm.Hence Not sufficient.

Thus E.

sm/sp =?

1. Not sufficient

as we dont know sp.


sm = 10000 + sp
=> sm/sp = 10000/sp +1

2. Not sufficient

tm/sm = 1/20 = tp/sp

not enough to find out sm/sp.

Together,

still not sufficient.

Answer is E.

Yes, from \(\frac{T_m}{S_m}=\frac{T_p}{S_p}\) we can get that \(\frac{S_m}{S_p}=\frac{T_m}{T_p}\) but it does NOT mean that the ratio will remain the same, so it does not mean that since \(\frac{T_m}{S_m}=\frac{1}{20}\), then \(\frac{S_m}{S_p}=\frac{T_m}{T_p}\) will also be 1/20. Play with some numbers to prove that.

If the ratio of the number of teachers to the number of students is the same in School District M and School District P, what is the ratio of the number of students in School District M to the number of students in School District P ?

Given that \(\frac{T_m}{S_m}=\frac{T_p}{S_p}\), where \(T_m\) and \(S_m\) are the numbers of teachers and students, respectively, in District M, and \(T_p\) and \(S_p\) are the numbers of teachers and students, respectively, in District P.

We need to find the value of \(\frac{S_m}{S_p}\) --> \(\frac{S_m}{S_p}=\frac{T_m}{T_p}\)

(1) There are 10,000 more students in School District M than there are in School District P --> \(S_m=S_p+10,000\). Not sufficient.

(2) The ratio of the number of teachers to the number of students in School District M is 1 to 20 --> \(\frac{T_m}{S_m}=\frac{1}{20}\). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Still not sufficient, consider \(S_p=1,000\) and \(S_m=11,000\) (answer 11) AND \(S_p=10,000\) and \(S_m=20,000\) (answer 2).
