For physics bridging work we were given this question:

2. A bag of electrical components contains resistors, capacitors and diodes.

The ratio of capacitors to diodes in a bag is 1:5. There are 100 components in total. How many components are diodes?

I'm pretty sure for this question to have a single value but want to double-check as I notoriously read over stuff.

Thanks

Is there any other info, as unless I am being silly, you could have many different answers... For example 1 capacitor, 5 diodes and 94 resistors or 2 capacitors, 10 diodes and 88 resistor.

Nope! Honestly, my entire bridging work has awful formatting and is just dreadful. I ended up putting

If x = number of capacitors There can be any amount of diodes from 5-80 in the equation 5x

There are many answers if the firm (c,d,r) n, 5n, 100-6n. Is that the complete question?
