The ratio of Jay's crayons to Hunter's crayons is 1:4. If Hunter has 44 crayons, how many crayons do they have altogether?

If the ratio of Jay's crayons to Hunter's crayons is 1/4.

That would make Jay's crayons plus Hunter's crayons is (1+1/4) of Hunter's crayons

Hunter has 44 crayons, so they both have 44*(5/4) = 55.

I hope this helped. :)))

Hunter's crays are 4 out of (1+4 = 5) of the total ===> 4/5 of the total

4/5 x = 44

x = 55 total
