Fantasies = 50

so its 5:8?

Math  Ms. Sue, Friday, February 14, 2014 at 5:43pm
No.

Math  Brady, Friday, February 14, 2014 at 6:04pm
35 = books other than fantasy
50 = number of books that are fantasy
So, the answer is 35:50, and it equals 85.

Also, how did you get 5:8?

Math  Reiny, Friday, February 14, 2014 at 6:14pm
You want the ratio of
fantasies : total books
= 50 : 85
= 10 : 17
you had that.
