In a zoo the ratio of giraffes to apes is 6 to 5 and the ratio of apes to zebras is 4 to 1. What is the minimum number of zebras the zoo could have?

The smallest possible number of zebras is 6, because it has to be a multiple of 6.

The ratio of giraffes to zebras is NOT  6 : 1;   it's  6 : 1.25

 

The minimum number of zebras is 5

 

24 giraffes,   20  apes,   and  5  zebras

 

This ratio is:     6  :   5   :   1.25     smiley
