Hi mandy jane;

Yes, people can help but it works better when you post a question.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

A ratio is a way of comparing two things. If there are 3 men and 5 women in a room speaking the ration of men to women is 3 to 5 or 3:5 or 3 / 5.

Please go here and see what you like:

Hi bob bundy. Here are my answer to the questions you sent me?

Q1: If you have 9 red beads, how many green beads will i need? you need 4 green beads

Q2: If you have 10 green beads how many red beads will i need? you need 15 red beads

Q3: If i want a necklaces with 20 beads altogether, how many red and how many green beads will i need? you need 12 red and 8 green beads

Q4: If i want a necklaces with 55 beads how many red and how mandy green beads will i need? you need 33 red and 22 green

Q5: A person ask for a necklaces with 24 beads explain why this is not possible? It is not possible because you have 3 red and 2 green beads = 5 beads and you can not make a neckles like this to 24 because 5 dose not go into 24

Hi;

You would need a tutor for that. How are you doing with the last set of problems Bob gave you?

Hi;

That I do not know. Personalized instruction is very hard to find.

I would recommend instead coming in here for a solid hour per day and working on one problem

at a time.
