  1. #8
    2x+3x+4x = 63
    x = 7
    So, the actual quantities are

    14:21:28

    #9
    3ab/27ab = 1/9
    So, A,B,E are the equivalent ratios. D doesn't get rid of the a,b stuff.

    Odd how you could get B and E right, but miss A and pick D...

    #10
    B and D only

    A = Abby's part

    I = Ingrid's part

    J = John's part

    There are sixty three candies in the bag.

    This mean:

    A + I + J = 63


    A / I / J = 2 / 3 / 4

    This mean :

    A / I = 2 / 3

    I / J = 3 / 4

    so:

    A / I = 2 / 3 Multiply both sides by I

    A = 2 I / 3

    A = ( 2 / 3 ) I

    I / J = 3 / 4 Multiply both sides by 4

    4 I / J = 3 Multiply both sides by J

    4 I = 3 J Divide both sides by 3

    4 I / 3 = J

    J = 4 I / 3

    J = ( 4 / 3 ) I


    Replace this value in equation:

    A + I + J = 63

    ( 2 / 3 ) I + I + ( 4 / 3 ) I = 63

    ( 2 / 3 ) I + ( 3 / 3 ) I + ( 4 / 3 ) I = 63

    ( 9 / 3 ) I = 63

    3 I = 63 Divide both sides by 3

    I = 63 / 3 = 21


    9.

    3 a b : 27 a b = 3 a b : ( 9 * 3 a b ) = ( 3 a b : 3 a b ) * 1 : 9 = 1 * 1 : 9 = 1 : 9


    10.

    ( 2 x - 6 ) : ( 6 x - 4 ) =

    2 * ( x - 3 ) : [ 2 * ( 3 x - 2 ) ] =

    (2 : 2 ) ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 ) =

    1 * ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 ) =

    ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 )

  3. Thank you guys!

  4. Remark :

    1 * ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 ) =

    ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 )

    4 / 4 = 1 so :

    ( 4 / 4 ) * ( x - 3 ) : ( 3 x - 2 )

    4 * ( x - 3 ) : [ 4 * ( 3 x - 2 ) ] =

    ( 4 x - 12 ) : ( 12 x - 8 )
