Let w = white balls. Cross multiply and solve for w.
10/16 = w/112
16w = 1120
w = 70
Let s = striped
112  70 = s
? = s

16w = 1120
W=70
Striped golf balls = s
11270= 42
18.
V (12,4)
W (4,8)
X (6,4)
Y (6,10)
19. They are not similar because none of the coordinates would divide or multiply to get the larger number. Example: take 2.4ft and multiply 3 you will get 7.2. Again, take 2.4ft and multiply 4 and you will get 9.4
20. Yes, they are equivalent. 4 x 21= 84
6 x 14= 84
