    In 5 minutes A will make one box. In 5 minutes B will make 5/7 of a box. Therefore the ratio of boxes produced in a given time is 1 : 5/7. If you multiply both terms of this ratio by 7 you will eliminate the fraction.

    It used to be the case, but not now, that Mathematica v9's and openstudy's sigma Euqation button were compatible.

    Note that the number of hours worked does not affect the ratio of boxes produced by A and B.
