Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1None, unfortunately because if you divide 20/5 = 4 (that's good) but 5/4 = 1.25 (not good)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes so if 20 /4 = 5 then 5 represents the white paint and if 4 /4 = 1 then 1 represents the red paint. White:red = 5:1
