suppose that D+E=A, that N/A=.25 and that D/A=0.15. Solve for N/E.

• algebra -

this one takes some "playing around"
I did this

D+E=A, divide each term by A
D/A + E/A = A/A
0.15 + E/A = 1
E/A = .85 = 85/100 = 17/20
Then A/E = 20/17

But N/E = (N/A)(A/E) = (25/100)(20/17)
= 5/17 or appr. .294

Suppose that A = D + E and that D/A = 0.80. Solve for D/E. These are the steps I have taken, but I don't know how to proceed. 1. Divide A = D + E by A. 2. 1 = .80 + E/A 3. .20 = E/A 4. A/A = 1, D/A = .80, E/A = .20.
