There are 43 tiles in a bag. The colors are red, blue, green and yellow. Find the

number of each color tile given the following ratios:

red : blue = 2 : 3 blue : green = 2 : 1 green : yellow = 2 : 5

what is the number of tiles of each color??

Answer:43/13, 129/26, 129/13, 645/26

Step-by-step explanation:Let w represent the number of red tiles, x represent the number of blue tiles, y represent the number of green tiles and z represent the number of yellow tiles. Hence:

w + x + y + z = 43 (1)

x = 3/5(w + x)

2x/5 = 3w/5

x = 3/2(w)

x = 5w/2 – w = 3w/2 (2)

y = 2/3(x + y)

y/3 = 2x/3

y = 2x = 2(3w/2) = 3w (3)

z = 5/7(y + z)

2/7(z) = 5y/7

z = 5y/2 = 5(3w)/2 = 15w/2 (4)

substitute x = 3w/2, y = 3w and z = 15w/2 in equation 1:

w + 3w/2 + 3w + 15w/2 = 43

13w = 43

w = 43/13

x = 129/26

y = 3w = 129/13

z = 645/26
