Cha cruz has a garden. The ratio roses to tulips is 2 : 5, the ratio of roses to orchids is 7 : 6. Cha cruz wonders what the ratio of tulips to orchids is. If Cha cruz has 183 plants, how many of each kind are there?

Result

r =  42
t =  105
o =  36
p =  35:12

#### Solution:

$t = 105$
$o = 36$
$p = \dfrac{ t }{ o } = \dfrac{ 105 }{ 36 } = \dfrac{ 35 }{ 12 } \doteq 2.9167≈ 2.9167 = 35:12$
