No of odd integers/no of even integers=7k/4k

1/4of 7k/11k as 7k has to be integer so k should be 4

Total odd integers=7k=7*4=28
Total even integers=11k=11* 4=44

So ratio of 1/4th of odd/total integers=7/44

let $$x$$ be number of ODD integers

let $$y$$ be number of EVEN integers

ratio X to Y $$\frac{7x}{4y}$$

$$\frac{1}{4} *7x$$ = $$\frac{7x}{4}$$

$$\frac{\frac{7x}{4}}{\frac{11}{1}}$$ = $$\frac{7x}{4}*\frac{1}{11}$$ = $$\frac{7x}{44}$$

Another approach is to work with numbers that satisfy the given information.

The ratio of the number of odd integers to the number of even integers is 7 to 4
So. let's say there are 7 odd integers and 4 even integers

One-fourth of the number of odd integers is what fraction of the total number of integers in the list?
1/4 of 7 = (1/4)(7) = 7/4
TOTAL number of integers = 7 + 4 = 11

(7/4)/11 = (7/4)/(11/1)
= (7/4)(1/11)
= 7/44

Answer: A

ASIDE: Yes, 7/4 is not an integer. That's fine, since we're talking about proportions and not actual values.

Cheers,
Brent

(1/4)*(7/11)=7/44
