Ratio

6 numbers are in the ratio 1:5:1:5:5:5. Their sum is 242. What are the numbers?

Correct result:

a =  11
b =  55
c =  11
d =  55
e =  55
f =  55

Solution:

a=12421+5+1+5+5+5=11a = \dfrac{ 1 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 11
b=52421+5+1+5+5+5=55b = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55
c=12421+5+1+5+5+5=11c = \dfrac{ 1 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 11
d=52421+5+1+5+5+5=55d = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55
e=52421+5+1+5+5+5=55e = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55
f=52421+5+1+5+5+5=55f = \dfrac{ 5 \cdot 242}{ 1+5+1+5+5+5} = 55
