Q:
# Each student needs 4 stencils and 6 colored pencils for a project. If a class uses 27 colored pencils for the project, how many stencils do they used? Use a ratio table to solve this problem. _______ stencils

Accepted Solution

A:

The answer is 18 stencils.

Ratio of stencils to colored pencils is 4:6

stencils : colored pencils

4 : 6

4 x 27 : 6 x 27

4/6 x 27 : 6/6 x 27

2/3 x 27 : 27

2 x 9 : 27

18: 27

Thus, when colored pencils are 27, stencils used are 18.

Ratio of stencils to colored pencils is 4:6

stencils : colored pencils

4 : 6

4 x 27 : 6 x 27

4/6 x 27 : 6/6 x 27

2/3 x 27 : 27

2 x 9 : 27

18: 27

Thus, when colored pencils are 27, stencils used are 18.
