Adam has some brown and green buttons in a box. If he were to remove some brown buttons, the ratio of brown to green buttons would then be 3 : 2. If he were to remove the same number of green buttons, the ratio of brown to green buttons would then be 14 : 1. Find the ratio of brown buttons to green buttons in the box.

If #1 [brown removed, green is original]

                  B : G : T = 3 : 2 : 5 = 9 : 6 : 15


If #2 [green removed, brown is original]

                 B : G : T               = 14  : 1 : 15

 

B : G = 14:6 =  7 : 3 (Ans)                           remaining

                                                                    unchanged
