# Homework Help: Solving Ratios in Mathematics?

Asked by shnaz (7)

I’m trying to solve this ratio problem. Can’t seem to get around in solving it.

750g of salt is to be divided between three storage cans A,B and C in the ratios A:B = 5:2 and B:C = 3:2. What mass of salt will be stored in each can?

A quick solution would be much appreciated.
