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?
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
