3/8 are black, 5/8 are white
2/9 are circle, 7/9 are triangle

so I think, 3/8 / 7/9 = 27/56?

Please can someone help me with this question?

There are four types of cards in a game.
Each card has a black circle or a white circle or a black triangle or a white triangle.

Number of cards with a black shape:number of cards with a white shape = 3:5

Number of cards with a circle:number of cards with a triangle = 2:7

Express the total number of cards with a black shape as a fraction of the total number of cards with a triangle.

Any help would be appreciated and if you show your working out as well! Thanks so much!😪x
so basically to find the total number of cars you would have to make the two ratios equal to the same total, as both ratios need to added up to th e same total.

3x9:5x9=72
27:45
2x8:7x8=72
16:56

so the fraction should be

27/56

Hope this helped

tbf you dont even need a common total, since your working with fractions rather than LCM if that makes sense
