Math

Sinea and Ren are going to the carnival next week. The table shows the amount that each person spent on snacks, games and souvenirs the last time they went to the carnival.

Sinea= Snacks $5.00; Games $8.00; Souvenirs $12.00
Ren=Snacks 10; Games $8.00; Souvenirs; $20.00

a. Sinea wants to spend money using the same ratios as on her last trip to the carnival. If she spends $26.00 on games, how much will she spend on souvenirs?

b. Ren wants to spend money using the same ratios as on his last trip to the carnival. If he spends $5.00 on souvenirs, how much will he spend on snacks?

I am very confused on how to figure out part a and b. Please help me.

  3. a. ratio-12/8 so if she spends 26 on games, she must spend 12/8 *26 on souveniors

    b. so if Ren spends 5 bucks on souvenirs, then she spends 2.5 on snacks. ratio=20/10

  4. I understand how you put it in a different perspective 12/8 so if he spends 26 on games she must spend 12/8 x 26 would you put 26 as the numerator or denominator?

  7. ren spent 1.5 times as much on souvenours as games. If she spends 26 on gams, then she must spend 26+13 on souvenours, =39 dollars.
