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

17: cross multiply

10/16 = w/112

16w = 1120

W=70

Striped golf balls = s

112-70= 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
