One group (A) contains 510 people. One-third of the people in group A will be selected to win $50 fuel cards. There is another group (B) in a nearby town that will receive the same number of fuel cards, but there are 393 people in that group. What will be the ratio of nonwinners in group A to nonwinners in group B after the selections are made? Express your ratio as a fraction or with a colon.

1/3  *  510  =    170  winners  in Group  A

510  -  170  =    340 non-winners in Group A 

 

393  -  170  =  223  non-winners  in Group B

 

Non-winners in   A   :     Non-winners in B   

       340                  :              223
