x = number of pairs of sandals sold = 287

Total pair of sneakers and sandals sold = 451 pairs

Step-by-step explanation:

Sneakers = 4

Sandals = 7

Sneakers : sandals = 4 : 7

If the store sells 164 pair of sneakers

Let

x = number of pairs of sandals sold

Sneakers : sandals = 164 : x

Equate both ratios to find x

4 : 7 = 164 : x

4/7 = 164/x

4 * x = 7 * 164

4x = 1,148

x = 1,148/4

x = 287

x = number of pairs of sandals sold = 287

how many pair of sneakers and sandals does the store sell in all ?

Total pair of sneakers and sandals sold = Sneakers + sandals

= 164 + 287

= 451 pairs

Total pair of sneakers and sandals sold = 451 pairs
