Hi Shirley,

If I remember correctly , you posted this question before. Btw I would like to check on the following statement extracted out from your question.

<On Monday, Grandma had some yellow and purple sweets in the , she made 54more ratio 9:7>..

Referring to the text highlighted in red, is there a typo error? It seems to me that it is.

Following pls find my worked solution :

<Before>
Y : P
9 : 7

<Process>
+54 Y, -44 P, -129 Y
Total: -75 Y, -44 P

<After>
Y : P
6 : 5

Apply <Changed Qtys concept>, and using Cross-Multiply method, we have ...

(9u - 75) / 6 = (7u - 44) / 5
5 x (9u - 75) = 6 x (7u - 44)
45u - 375 = 42u - 264
45u - 42u --> 375 - 264
3u --> 111
1u --> 37

Y (in the end) = 9u - 75 --> (9 x 37) - 75
= 333 - 75
= 258

=======================

Trust the above helps.

Do let me know again if this is different from your Answerkey, or if there's any clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
