Peppers

In the box are yellow (a), green (b) and red (c) peppers. Their amount is in a ratio 2:4:1 . Most are yellow peppers and green the least. Calculate the number of peppers each type if the total number of peppers is 70.

Result

a =  40
b =  10
c =  20

Solution:

a=70 4/(2+4+1)=40a=70 \cdot \ 4/(2+4+1)=40
b=70 1/(2+4+1)=10b=70 \cdot \ 1/(2+4+1)=10
c=70 2/(2+4+1)=20c=70 \cdot \ 2/(2+4+1)=20
