so the ratio is of ounces at lunch to total in a week is?

- Faman39

I got weird disgusting long decimal :(

- PhoenixFire

don't put it into a calculator... just write it here.

- PhoenixFire

\[{lunch \over total}={? \over ?}\]

- Faman39

14/38

- PhoenixFire

correct... and now can you simplify that?

- Faman39

10

- PhoenixFire

ummm, no.
\[{14 \over 38}={7 \over 19}\]If you look in your options, 7 to 19 is one of them. That should be your answer.

the question says he ATE 8 ounces at breakfast, 14 at lunch and 16 at dinner during a week. you don't need to multiply by 7 because it states that IN A WEEK he ATE that much.
14 at lunch
38 in total.
therefore 14/38, then simplify to get 7/19
