Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the pools are similar each to other, then we can write these proportions: \[\Large \begin{gathered} 14:7 = 22:b \hfill \\ \hfill \\ 14:7 = 16:c \hfill \\ \hfill \\ 14:7 = a:9 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I apply the fundamental property of proportions, I can write: \[\Large b = \frac{{22 \times 7}}{{14}} = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is: \[\Large b = \frac{{22 \times 7}}{{14}} = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: \[\Large b = \frac{{22 \times 7}}{{14}} = \frac{{154}}{{14}} = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, we have: b=11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just wondering why did you get b=22*7/14 instead of 22*87/14b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so is that partially the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the pool for dog is scaled by a factor 1/2 with respect to the other pool, so b has to be 22/2=11
