Ornamental shrubs

Children committed to plant 240 ornamental shrubs. Their commitment however exceeded by 48 shrubs. Write ratio of actually planted shrubs and commitment by lowest possible integers a/b.

Correct result:

a =  6
b =  5

Solution:

x=240 y=x+48=240+48=288 288=2532 240=2435 GCD(288,240)=243=48  d=GCD(y,x)=GCD(288,240)=48 a=y/d=288/48=6
b=x/d=240/48=5



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
