    Answer:

    19.6

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The ratio of brown paint to white paint is, 5:7 or \frac{5}{7} so if he bought 14 gallons of white paint we need to figure out:

    \frac{5}{7} =\frac{14}{x}

    which we can as it only has one unknown:

    5x=14×7

    5x=98

    x=19.6

    So the answer is 19.6

    Answer:

    B. 19.6 gallons

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5 Gallons of Brown ⇒ 7 Gallons of White

    14 Gallons of Brown ⇒ x

    x = 7 into 14 / 5

    x = 98 / 5

    x = 19.6

    HOPE IT HELPS 🙂
