In a certain orchestra, the ratio of cello players to viola players is 4:5. If there are 2 more viola players than cello players, how many viola players are there?


A 8
B 9
C 10
D 11
E 12


let cello players be x.

Then viola player = 2 + x.

\(\frac{x}{2+x}\) = \(\frac{4}{5}\)
5x = 8 + 4x

x = 8.

Voila player = 8 + 2 = 10.

C is the correct answer.

c/v= 4/5
v=c+2
c/c+c=4/5
c=8
