Lara has three cats: Socks, Princess, and Luna.

The ratio of Sock's weight to Princess's weight is 4:5.
The ratio of Princess's weight to Luna's weight is 6:7.
What is the ratio of Sock's weight to Luna's weight?

Answer

a = Sock's weight b = Princess' weight c = Luna's weight a : b = 4 : 5 b : c = 6 : 7 at this point, we have to change the 2 ratios (a : b and b : c) into one ratio (a : b : c) to do that, we have to change the ratio number so the number b in both ratio is the same a : b = 4 : 5 = 24 : 30 b : c = 6 : 7 = 30 : 35 From that we can conclude that a : b : c = 24 : 30 : 35 Since we're looking for the ratio of Sock's weight to Luna's weight, it will be a : c = 24 : 35
