abduls question thingy

(6) Jacob has a record of winning
2 boxing matches for every 5 he loses. If he had 49 matches during the last year, how many did he win?
answer:
He won 14 matches out of 49.
To get this answer you have to add the total number of matches. He won 2 and lost 5 so the total is seven. To figure out the answer you have to divide 7 by 49 which is 7. Then multiply 7 by 2 which is 14. That is your answer
