Suppose the ratio of Lev's age to Mina's age is 1 : 2 and the ratio of Mina's age to Naomi's age is 3 : 4.

What is the three-way ratio of Lev's age to Mina's age to Naomi's age? Give your answer in simplest form.

L =Lev, M=Mina, N=Naomi

L/M = 1/2 and M/N=3/4. Therefore:

L=3N/8, M=3N/4, N = (4 M)/3. So if Lev is 1-year old, then:

L= 1, M= 2, N =2 2/3. So the ratio of:

L : M : N =1 : 2 : 2 2/3

Not sure about 'simplest form"   but

1:2   is   3:6

and

3:4    is    6:8

 

then you have

3:6:8
