For a certain shade of pink paint, the ratio of white paint to red paint is 5 to 2. Explain how to use the strip diagram shown below to find at least 6 different quantities of white and red paint that will be in the ratio 5 to 2 (and so will make the same shade of pink). In each case, describe the amount of pink paint that will be made. Include at least 3 mixtures where the quantities of paint are not both whole numbers of units. (You may choose any units you like, such as gallons, liters, pails, or something else.)
