Your link is broken. I presume it is an attempt at a solution. Can you type it out?

$J =t$

$W=4+t$

$D=t-5$

Since $t-5<t<t+4$

So, $t-5<t+4$

Hi Dan,

Here are the four options:

A) 4 + t
------
5 - t

B) t + 4
------
t - 5

C) t - 4
-----
t - 5

D) 4 + t
-----
5 + t

Thank you deesuwalka ; I suppose your response is equivalent to option B

$\dfrac{w}{d} = \dfrac{t+4}{t-5}$
