A trail mix contains a 4: 7 ratio of raisins to peanuts. How many kilograms of raisins are there if there are four kilograms of peanuts in the mix?

4/7 X x/4 CROSS MULTIPLY

7x=16 Divide both sides by 7

x= 16/7 Please simplify--> i've simplified it to 2 2/7

But im not sure how to change it to kilograms

How many kilograms of peanuts are in the mix?
