Team A and Team B are raising money for a charity event. The ratio of money collected by Team A to money collected by Team B is 5:6. The ratio of the number of students on Team A to the number of students on Team B is 2:3. What is the ratio of money collected per student on Team A to money collected per student on Team B?
(A) 4:5
(B) 5:4
(C) 5:6
(D) 5:9
(E) 9:5
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)
