Mary is baking cookies for her school bake sale. For every 5 chocolate chip cookies she makes 2 oatmeal raisin cookies. If she keeps this ratio, and bakes 84 cookies total, what will be the ratio of chocolate chip cookies to oatmeal raisin cookies?

It will still be 5 to 2.

• math -

correct
Because
2+5=7
sum of ratio is 7
2/7x84=24
5/7x84=60
now
24:60
2:5 (Took 12 as common)
