okay..if there happened to be some eratum in the question,i am really sorry about that,maybe the answer was predicted to be some sort of approximation to a whole number..but would you please explain on how you ended up getting 22:21..i just wanted to know clearly how it is possible to have ratio from unequal two separate number of days

The question asks for "the ratio of rate of earning$2.75 for 5 days' work to the rate of earning $2.1 for 4 days' work" ----- it's asking for a ratio of rates, which is a very difficult idea. Rate #1 =$2.75/5 = $0.55 Rate #2 =$2.10/4 = $1.05/2 The ratio sought by the question is the ratio of these two rates: ratio = [Rate #1]/[Rate #2] = ($0.55)/[$1.05/2] = ($0.55)*(2/$1.05) =$1.10/$1.05 = 110/105 = 22/21 Does all this make sense?
