Question

if a : b = 5:3 find `(5a - 3b)/(5xa + 3b)`

Solution

a :  b = 5 : 3

`=> a/b = 5/3`

`(5a - 3a)/(5a + 3b) = (5(a/b) - 3)/(5(a/b) = 3)`  (Dividing each term by 3)

`= (5(5/3) - 3)/(5(5/3) +{ 3)`

`= (25/3 - 3)/(25/3 + 3)`

`= (25 - 9)/(25 + 9)`

`= 16/34 = 8/17`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
