**Reiny**, Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 10:41amA : B = 2 : 5 or 4 : 10 (looking at the next line)

B : C = 10 : 3

so A : B : C = 4 : 10 : 3

b)

A : C = 10 : 3

so 3A = 10C ---> A = 10C/3

also A+C = 70

12C/3 + C = 70

12C + 3C = 210

15C = 210

C = 14

B = 56

c) I assume we go back to the original definition, and the count is different from b)

A : B : C = 4:10:3

A:40:C = 4:10:3 = 16:40:12

Then A 16 , C=12

A+C = 28
