5 : 2    means that there are  5 + 2  =  7 equal parts

 

And  the red bricks  are   5/7  of the total....so.....

 

(5/7) 210  =

 

5 (210 / 7)  =

 

5 (30)  =

 

150   red bricks

 

And

 

The grey bricks  are 2/7  of the total  =

 

(2/7) (210)  =

 

2 ( 210 / 7)  =

 

2 (30)  =

 

60  grey bricks

 

 

cool cool cool
