    13000 + 22000 + 18000 = 53000 first find the ratio of Rob to Chuck at the beginning. Keep it as a simplified fraction |dw:1436117989435:dw|

    you're supposed to get 1 single FRACTION when you do the division above. You're just dividing fractions, like this example. You flip the 2nd fraction to its reciprocal and then multiply straight across |dw:1436118747658:dw|
