Question

The ratio of the cost of a tennis racket to tennis balls is 18:1. If a can of balls cost

$5.35, what is the cost of the racket?

The ratio of the cost of a tennis racket to tennis balls is 18:1

Let the cost of the racket be x

Since balls cost is $5.35.

Then, we have the equation

\dfrac{x}{5.35}=\dfrac{18}{1}

Solving for x gives the cost of the racket as $96.3
