132 penguins 4
- = -
48 sea lions 11
i don't think the 2 fractions = eachother(11 doesn't go into 48
wait no im wrong ignore thelast post
c IS right because 48/132=4/11:
48 divided by 4=12
132 divided by 11=12
right. Here is they knew to pick those numbers.
Let number sea lions = S
let number penquins = P
We know two things.
S/P = 4/11 AND
Two equations with two unknowns. Solve simultaneously for S and P.
S is 48 and P is 132
and 48/132 is in the ratio of 4/11
