A:B:C

5:4

5:6 We need the least common multiple of 4 and 5 (it is 20) to make the B work

if we make B 20, an increase of a factor of 5, we must increase A by a factor of 5 and C by a factor of 4

A: B: C

25:20:24 25 +20 + 24 = 69 eggs

Another way A/B = 5/4 B/C = 5/6 so A/B * B/C = A/C = 5/4 * 5/6 = 25/24 in simplest form

if A = 25 and C = 24 then B = 20
