At the beginning of the week, an electronics store took count of how many tvs and radios there were in the stockroom. The manager found that there was a ratio of 3 tvs for every 2 radios.
At the end of the week, the manager counted 24 boxes left in the stockroom. Using the original ratio, find the number of tvs & the number of radios that were left in the stockroom.
I forgot to mention there were 18 radios counted on Monday
I tried 3x + 2x = 24
5x = 4.8
then multiply 3 • 4.8 = 15.4 and 2 • 4.8 = 9.6
which means 14 tvs & 10 radios would be left
On monday, 3/2 = x/18 where x is numba of tv x=27...bt d problm here is dat no relationship in terms of hw many tv or radio ix containd in per box
