I can tag some other people just in case
let's see.. we can re-write the ratios as fractions
roses to snapdragons was 4 to 5.
4 roses: 5 snapdragons
now we are given 26,000 roses and ? snapdragons so that's the unknown we need to solve for
then we can use cross multiplication
\[\large 4(x) = 26,000(5)\]
\[\large 4x = 130,000\]
dividing 4 on both sides gives me
\[\large x=32,500\] snapdragons
so our ratio is
26,000 roses to 32,500 snapdragons
yes @heretohelpalways you've done it right.
