you have 25 acres and in every acre theres 10 beds. if my ratio is 6 females to 2 males. how many females and males do i have in the whole 25 acres?

• math -

What are you planting? Kiwis?
You have 250 beds.
6:2 ratio means 8 equal parts.
8 doesn't divide 250 evenly, so let's use 8 parts of 31 = 248 beds.

females:males = 6*31:2*31 = 186:62
