    let's see.. we can re-write the ratios as fractions so given 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 \[\large \frac{4}{5}=\frac{26,000}{x}\] 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 or 26,000:32,500 yes @heretohelpalways you've done it right.
