# Percentage increase in ratios..

The question is:

Seats for Math,Physics and biology in a school are in ratio 5:7:8. There is a proposal to increase these seats by 40%,50% and 75% respectively.What will be ratio of increased seats?

Apparently I am currently increasing 5 by 40% and 7 by 50% and 8 by 75% . But this is not giving the correct answer. Any suggestions what should be done here ??

Let number of seats be $5x,7x$ and $8x$. Number of seats after increment =$7x,21x/2,14x$. Therefore the new ratio is $14:21:28=2:3:4$.isn't this the answer?
