Please explain.

Thanks!

Let I, Y, P, and R be the numbers of each color. Each letter stands for the color.

I/Y = 3/5

Y/P = 1/2

I/R = 2/5

I = 6

That is four equations in four unknowns. They already told you the value of I.

Y = (5/3) I

Y = 10

Proceed with the equations to have to get R and P
