I have a question that i've worked through but can't seem to figure out how to converge it to kg.

A trail mix contains a 4: 7 ratio of raisins to peanuts. How many kilograms of raisins are there if there are four kilograms of peanuts in the mix?
4/7 X x/4 CROSS MULTIPLY
7x=16 Divide both sides by 7
x= 16/7 Please simplify--> i've simplified it to 2 2/7
But im not sure how to change it to kilograms

How many kilograms of peanuts are in the mix?

  • Math -

    you don't need to convert it, just answer it as 2 2/7 kilograms, the x is already in kilorgrams
