1/7 of Matthew's allowance is equal to 3/8 of Ryan's allowance. What is the ratio of Matthew's allowance to Ryan's?

  • Maths -

    let Matthew's allowance be m
    let Ryan's allowance be r

    "1/7 of Matthew's allowance is equal to 3/8 of Ryan's allowance"
    (1/7)m = (3/8)r
    8m = 21r
    m/r = 21/8

    m : r = 21 : 8
