Problem
Two jars each contain the same number of marbles, and every marble is either blue or green. In Jar the ratio of blue to green marbles is , and the ratio of blue to green marbles in Jar is . There are green marbles in all. How many more blue marbles are in Jar than in Jar ?
Solution
Call the amount of marbles in each jar , because they are equivalent. Thus, is the amount of green marbles in , and is the amount of green marbles in . , , and marbles in each jar. Because the is the amount of blue marbles in jar , and is the amount of blue marbles in jar , , so there must be more marbles in jar than jar . The answer is
