Result

min = (Correct answer is: F) Wrong answer
max = (Correct answer is: P) Wrong answer

Solution:

F=2/9=290.2222 t K=1/4=14=0.25 t P=19/36=19360.5278 t  P>K>F  min=F=0.2222F=2/9=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 9 } \doteq 0.2222 \ \text{t} \ \\ K=1/4=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 4 }=0.25 \ \text{t} \ \\ P=19/36=\dfrac{ 19 }{ 36 } \doteq 0.5278 \ \text{t} \ \\ \ \\ P > K > F \ \\ \ \\ min=F=0.2222
max=P=0.5278max=P=0.5278
