Ornamental shrubs

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

Correct answer:

a =  6
b =  5

Step-by-step explanation:

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
