    Ratio of the number of widgets sold by company E and D in 2006 is 8 to 2 respectively. In other words, company E sold 4 times as many widgets as company D. Company D sold 1.2 million widgets in 2006. If we multiply 1.2 million by 4, we get 4.8 million or 4,800,000, the amount sold by company E.

    In general if the ration between two numbers, for example C and E, is 5:8 you it is true that: \[\frac{C}{E} = \frac{5}{8} \] You can read off C from the graph and solve for E. I.e: \[5E = 8*C = 8*3million = 24 million \] dividing by 5 gives 4.8 million, the same result. The way the problem is written you can solve it two ways. You can use the ratio between C and E, or the ratio between D and E. Using D and E leads to easier calculation, but both give the same result.
