Hello

I have some difficulties in helping my daughter to solve her homework

Please if you could help me with the following questions:

1) a shade of pink is made by mixing red and white paint in the ratio 7:2. How much of each colour is need to make 45 liters of pink?

2) how can i simplify the following ratio £3:50p?

Your help is very much appreciated

1. Not sure if you need to do it a certain way, but the way I did it was,

7L + 2L = 45

9L = 45

L = 5, therefore, you need 5 time the ratio of both red and white paint, so 35 liters of red and 10 liters of white. 35:10 = 7:2

I'm not sure what you're asking in the second question. Is the "P" a variable or a european unit of measure? 3:50 is in it's simplest form.

I can answer questions in basic algebra and any grade school math.

Love math, currently helping my nephew get through Intermediate Algebra.**Education/Credentials**
