C. 3:2

E. 1:2

Given:
economy:luxury = 3:2
economy: sport = 4:3

We need to COMBINE these ratios.
Since both ratios include economy vehicles, we'll find equivalent ratios that share the same value for economy vehicles.

Take the top ratio, 3:2 and multiply both sides by 4 to get the equivalent ratio 12:8

Take the bottom ratio, 4:3 and multiply both sides by 3 to get the equivalent ratio 12:9

At this point, we can combine the ratios to get:
economy:luxury:sport = 12:8:9

What is the ratio of luxury cars to sport utility vehicles?
luxury:sport = 8:9

Cheers,
Brent

Economy / luxury = 3/2
Economy = 3/2 * luxury
Luxury = 2/3 * economy

Economy/ sport = 4/3
Economy = 4/3*sport
Sport = 3/4 * economy

Luxury/ sport = ?
Luxury/sport = 2/3 * economy / 3/4 * economy = 2/3 * 4/3 = 8/9
