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
3:4 is 6:8
then you have
