Question: There are 500 students in a collage class. The ratios of Business, Accounting and Engineering majors are: 7:8:10. How many Engineering majors are there in the class? Thanks, John 

Hi John, 7 + 8 + 10 = 25 so you can arrange the 500 students groups of 25 where, in each group, there are 7 Business majors, 8 Accounting majors and 10 Engineering majors. How many groups of 25 are there? How many Engineering majors are there? Penny
