480 cars
1/4 hybrids = 120

1/2 hybrids sold = 60

Remaining unsold hybrids = 60
cars = 480-60 = 420

ratio = 60/420 = 6/42 = 1/7

There are 480 x 1/4 = 120 hybrids. Since half are to be sold, 60 are to be sold. Thus, 60 hybrids and a total of 420 cars will remain.

Thus, hybrids will then represent 60/420 = 1/7 of the total number of cars in the dealership.
