Hi anna

Let:

number of chicken wings bought = x

number of fishballs bought = y

total money = m

chicken wing = cw

fishball = fb

This means that : x (cw) = 4/5 m

This means that : 1 (cw) : 1 (fb) = 5 : 2 orThe cost of each chicken wing to the cost of each fishball is in the ratio of 5:2.

Find the ratio of the number of chicken wings to the number of fishballs Sally bought for the party.

The question is x : y = ?

Let's start

x (cw) = 4/5 m ------> equation 1

So the cost of the fishballs is 1/5 of the money. This means y (fb) = 1/5 m -------> equation 2

Equation 1 divided by equation 2 will give you result :

-----> equation 3

From the question :

----> equation 4

Subs. equation 4 to equation 3 will give you the answer ^^
