Answer:15 bicyclesStep-by-step explanation:ratio of bicycles to tricycles is 5:1 because it is 5 times greater and tricycle has 3 wheels and bicycles have 2 so i take 5 from the ratio and make a equation 5(2)+3(1)=13

i then divide 39 by 3 and get 3 i then take 3 and multiply it with it for the whole equation and find that 15 is the number of bicycles.
