Our company parking lot has cars, trucks, and motorcycles. The ratio of cars, trucks, and motorcycles is \(4:3:2 \) If there are a total of 42 cars and trucks, then how many motorcycles are there?

#1**+2 **

cars (4) and trucks(3) represent (4+3) out of (4+3+2) vehicles or 7/9 of the vehicles the remaining 2/9 are motorcycles

7/9 x = 42 where x = the total number of vehicles x = 54

2/9 of these 54 vehicles are motorcycles 2/9 (54) = 12 motorcycles
