Ratio of infielders to outfielders = 7: 4

Multiplying this ratio by 3 we get = (7 *3) : (4 * 3) = 21 : 12

Ratio of pitchers to outfielders = 5 : 3

Multiplying this ratio by 4 we get = (5 * 4) : (3 * 4) = 20 : 12

Combining both the ratio since outfielder number is common , hence ratio of outfielders to infielder to pitchers = 12: 21: 20

Probability of picking a pitcher from this team = Number of pitchers / Total members in the team = 20 / (20 + 21 +12)

= 20 /53

Answer is E

Why did you multiply by 3 and 4?
