BW-BS balls

Adam has a full box of balls that are large or small, black or white. Ratio of large and small balls is 5:3. Within the large balls the ratio of the black to white is 1:2 and between small balls the ratio of the black to white is 1:8

What is the ratio of all black to all white balls?

Result

x =  0.33

Solution:

Solution in text x =

a=1
a+b = 5/3*(c+d)
a = 1/2*b
c = 1/8 * d

a = 1
3a+3b-5c-5d = 0
2a-b = 0
8c-d = 0

a = 1
b = 2
c = 15 = 0.2
d = 85 = 1.6
