Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know M/J (it is 3/7) you know M/W (2/5) what is J/W ? one way to do this is "solve" for J and solve for W, then take the ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if M/J= 3/7 then (flip both) J/M= 7/3 multiply both sides by M to get J= 7M/3 can you solve for W in M/W = 2/5 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we do J/W \[ \frac{\frac{7m}{3}}{\frac{5m}{2}} \]
