b) particle A has three times the mass and twice the kinetic energy of particle B. What is the speed ratio VA / VB?

What happens to KE when you replace V with a number 4 times larger?

If you can't do that "in your head", try calculating the raio of kinetic energies

KE2/KE1 = (4V)^2/V^2 = ?

b) KEb = KEa/2

KEb/KEa = (Mb/Ma)*(Vb/Va)^2 = 1/2

= (1/3)*(Vb/Va)^2

Solve for Va/Vb
