A bag contains 10 white golf balls and 6 striped golf balls. A golfer wants to add 112 golf balls to the bag. He wants the ratio of white to striped golf balls to remain the same. How many of each should he add?

See my answer below.

It says 'See my answer below' but, there is actually no answer to the problem! Please fix this!

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
(copied off Ms.Sue, look at a different answer at the question BELOW this one in the before page dingdong) 
what he/she is saying is that theres still no answer your the ding dong.
