*Warehouse A has 5 times as many employees as Warehouse B, and Warehouse C has 3 times as many employees as Warehouse B. Warehouse A has how many times as many employees as Warehouse C?*

A = 5B (eq 1)

C = 3B (eq 2)

Multiply (eq 1) by 3 3A = 15B

Multiply (eq 2) by 5 5C = 15B

Therefore 3A = 5C

**A = (5 / 3) C**

Bosco summed it up really nicely, for me the key to these types of problems / where to start is by trying to make everything related to a single variable :

For example: since warehouse A and Warehouse B are relating themselves to Warehouse C then I would say :

Warehouse A = 5 ( Warehouse B)

Warehouse C = 3 ( Warehouse B)
