    It says 'See my answer below' but, there is actually no answer to the problem! Please fix this!

  • Pre-Algebra -

    Let w = white balls. Cross multiply and solve for w.

    10/16 = w/112

    16w = 1120

    w = 70

    Let s = striped

    112 - 70 = s

    ? = s

    (copied off Ms.Sue, look at a different answer at the question BELOW this one in the before page ding-dong)
