The ratio of A to B by mass in A2B3 is 0.4297. The ratio of A to C by mass in AC is 5.712. Find the ratio of B to C by mass in B2C.

I suck at this. So, I will help.

a/c =5.712

c=5.712a

2c/3b=(.4297/5.712)

3b/2c = (5.712/.4297)

2b/c = (4/3) * (5.712/.4297)

ratio = 17.72?

If I'm wrong, Cepheid will be our savior.
