Plz, plz help me.....

1. No.
50:10 = 5:1
2.
r/5= 9/21
Cross multiply and solve for x.
21r = 45
r = 45/21
r = 2.1429
3. No.
4. No.
5. Right
6. 2.97 / 3 = ? 
1.
10:2 is not in lowest terms, both numbers divide by 2
10:2
= 5:1
2.
r/5= 9/21
r = 45/21 = 15/7 which is appr 2.143
They should have given 15/7 as the correct choice,
the rounded off number is not exact.
3. puzzled by your choice.
it takes 3 cups to make 9 dozen
so it takes 9 cups to make 9 dozen
4.
39/12 , this fraction does not reduce any more
5. 62.6 gallons/10 months = 6.26 gallons/month
(you had that one right, finally!)

1 cookie costs 2.97/3 or 99 cents per cookie
Wow, 1 out of 6!

Looks like an attitude check is needed aswell.
