Q:
# (17 Points) Kenzie makes quilts with some blue squares and some green squares. The ratio of blue squares to green squares is shown in the diagram.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Quilt A: 35 green squares. Quilt B: 12 blue squares. Step-by-step explanation: Based on the diagram, there are 3 blue squares for every 5 green squares. Then the ratio can be expressed as: [tex]3:5\ or\ \frac{3}{5}[/tex] Therefore, knowing the ratio, you can calculate: - The number of green squares (G) in quilt A, as following: [tex]\frac{3}{5}=\frac{21}{G}\\\\G=\frac{21*5}{3}\\G=35[/tex] - The number of blue squares (B) in quilt B, as following: [tex]\frac{3}{5}=\frac{B}{20}\\\\B=\frac{20*3}{5}\\B=12[/tex]
