7:17

or 10:17

Math 
Ms. Sue,
The total books = 85
Fantasies = 50 
Math 
Angel,
so its 5:8?

Math 
Ms. Sue,
No.

Math 
Brady,
35 = books other than fantasy
50 = number of books that are fantasy
So, the answer is 35:50, and it equals 85. 
Math  Angel 
Brady,
Also, how did you get 5:8?

Math 
Reiny,
You want the ratio of
fantasies : total books
= 50 : 85
= 10 : 17
you had that.
