My first thought is what else can private homes be made of (remembering the three little piggies). Straw? Steel? Mud?

Next, is terms: is an apartment a house? Lets assume our way out of that one...change the question to what is the maximum portion of private homes that may be brick.

Let H be homes.

then 1/10 H are not brick.

*assume* 9/10 are brick

Then ratio becomes brick homes/apartments = .9(3/5)=27/50
