Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so the ratio is 2:1 (red to blue). It says in this question that blue is 36 sq. feet. So, all we have to do it *2 to make it match the ratio. 36*2=72. ONce you put this back in the ratio 72:36, it comes back to 2:1 when you simplify so it's correct :) The answer is A
