A. \(\frac{10}{23}\)

B. \(\frac{7}{10}\)

It should be D

For readers, denominator for P is just 1 n. The fraction then adds into so you can rewrite it as \(n + \frac{p}{n}\) for a clearer understanding.

Andrew:

\(1 + \frac{9}{1}\) \(= 1 + 9 = 10\)

Jason:
\(3 + \frac{(5+6+7)}{3}\) \(= 3 + \frac{18}{3} = 9\)

Andrew : Jason \(= 10 : 9\)

Answer D

Andrew: n=1, p=9 So: 9/1+1=10
Jason: n=3, p=5+6+7=18 So: 18/3+3=9
Ratio: 10/9

Andrew's overall score = \(\frac{9}{1} + 1 = 10\).

Jason's overall score \(= \frac{5+6+7}{3} + 3 = 6+3 = 9\).

Ratio = \(10:9\). Ans - D.

B. \(\frac{7}{10}\)

C. \(\frac{4}{5}\)

D. \(\frac{10}{9}\)

E. \(\frac{12}{7}\)


Since Andrew competed in 1 event and received 9 points, his overall score was:

9/1 + 1 = 10

Since Jason completed in 3 events and scored 5, 6, and 7 points, he scored a total of 18 points and his overall score was:

18/3 + 3 = 9

Thus, the ratio of Andrew’s score to Jason’s score is 10/9.

Answer: D

Andrew / Jason = X = Ratio of andrews overall over Jason's overall

Andrew = P/n + n = 9/1 + 1 = 1 9/1 = 10/1 = 10 = Andrews overall score
Jason = 18/3 + 3 = 3 18/3 = 27/3 = 9 = Jason's overall score
X = 10/9

Therefore, the correct answer is (D) 10/9

Good warm up question. I wonder what level it is.

Is there really a need of word " respectively" in the question?
What difference will it make with or without this word?

The reason i ask is this word made me calculate the three rates Separately at first and then re-do my calculations again.

Word "respectively" adds emphasize that you need to calculate each set of point i.e, 5, 6 , and 7 for 1 game only. Means 5/1, 6/1, and 7/. And not 5/1 + 1, 6/1 + 1 etc.

Though I did it wrong.
