For every 5 buttons that Caleb sold, Cole sold 2. Cole sold 36 fewer buttons than Caleb. How many buttons did Cole sell?

B==Caleb,  C==Cole,   N==Total buttons 


5 + 2 == 7 total ratios


5/7N - 2/7N ==36, solve for N


N==84 - total number of buttons


5/7 * 84 ==60 buttons sold by Caleb


2/7 * 84 ==24 buttons sold by Cole


Check: 60 - 24 ==36 fewer buttons sold by Cole.
