After doing an experiment you learn that 70 percent of the carrot seeds from Company A germinated within 10 days, while only 50 percent of the seeds from company B germinated within 10 days. What was the comparative germination ratio?

looks like a simple 7:5 ratio to me

That's what i thought but the answer in the back of the book said 1:14. Unless there was a missing decimal point and it was 1:1.4.

huh

7/5=1.4/1
Would that be right?
