(D) 5:9

Money ratio a/b = 5/6 i.e. if Money with team A is 5x then Money with team B is 6x
Student ratio a/b = 2/3 i.e. if Number of students in team A is 2y then Students in team B is 3y

Money collected per student in Team A = Money collected by A / Students in A = 5x/2y

Money collected per student in Team B = Money collected by B / Students in B = 6x/3y

Ratio of Money per student of team A to money per student of Team B = (5x/2y) / (6x/3y) = 5/4

Answer: Option B

I agree to the same. Should be B
Money ratio a/b = 5/6 i.e. if Money with team A is 5x then Money with team B is 6x
Student ratio a/b = 2/3 i.e. if Number of students in team A is 2y then Students in team B is 3y

Money collected per student in Team A = Money collected by A / Students in A = 5x/2y

Money collected per student in Team B = Money collected by B / Students in B = 6x/3y

Ratio of Money per student of team A to money per student of Team B = (5x/2y) / (6x/3y) = 5/4

Answer: Option B

The ratio of money collected by Team A to Team B is 5:6
Lets assume that Team A collected 50$ to the 60$ Team B collects
Also, it has been given that the number of students are in the ratio 2:3
So, for 2 students in Team A, we will have 3 in Team B

Since, we have been asked to find the ratio of the money collected
by a student in both the teams, for Team A, we must have had $25(\(\frac{50}{2}\))
Similarly, Team B will have $20(\(\frac{60}{4}\))

Therefore, ratio of money collected by the teams is $25:$20 = 5:4(Option B)

Let the money collected by Team A & team B be \(5x & 6x\). Also, let the number of students be \(2y & 3y.\)
So, the ratio will be \(\frac{(5x}{2y)/(6x/3y)}\). So, B.

We can let the ratio of money collected by Team A to money collected by Team B = 5x : 6x

We can let the ratio of the number of students on Team A to the number of students on Team B = 2y : 3y

So, the ratio of money collected per student on Team A to money collected per student on Team B is:

(5x/2y)/(6x/3y) = 15xy/12xy = 15/12 = 5/4

Answer: B
