A bag of 75 balls has a ratio of red balls to green balls is 2:7. If y, which is the number of red balls is graphed as a function of x, which is the number of green balls, which set of points will the line pass through? a. (0,0)and (2,7) b. (0,0) and (7,2) c. (0,75) and (2,7) d. (0,75)and (7,2)
I think the answer might be c but need clarification. I get that 2 out of every 9 balls would be red and 7 would be green. If there are 75 balls in total, there would be 16 red balls and 56 green balls. Would the equation be Number of red balls= Total number of balls- number of green balls? So that would be y=75-x? or y=9-x (if we are using the ratios?) I think this might be wrong though! I feel like it might be c, but how would this relate to the function/equation?
