Basically the ratios all have to = 144. So you add the ratio's up to get, like you said 12.

Beautiful_Lier96Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you get 12 so you times the ration by it.. do you think you can help me with some more ?.

Yes, correct. now we do 4 * 12: 7 * 12: and 1 * 12.... For this since we know 1*12 is 12 we can see B is the answer, so you were correct.

So again we add the sum of the 3 ratios to be 12, then divide the total by the sum, to get 12 again, then we multiply each ratio by that 12 to get our answer.
