There are white, blue, and red boats in a marina. Two-thirds of the boats in the marina are white,

5/8

of the remaining boats are blue, and the rest are red. If there are 6 red boats, how many boats are in the marina?

$$\frac{2}{3}\times m=w$$

$$\frac{5}{8}\times \frac{1}{3}\times m=\frac{5}{24}\times m=b$$

$$m(1-\frac{2}{3}-\frac{5}{24})=6$$ => $$\frac{1}{8}\times m=6$$ => $$m=48$$
