    Given :   3/5 of the ribbons in a box are blue the rest are pink and orange the ratio of the number of pink ribbons is 3:5

    To find :   ratio of the number of blue ribbons to the number of pink ribbons to the number of orange ribbons​

    Solution:

    ratio of the number of pink ribbons is 3:5 ( incomplete statement )

    Let say  Ribbon  are   20B

    => Blue ribbons are = (3/5) * 20B  =  12B

    Pink & Orange Ribbons are  20B – 12B  = 8B

    Assumption : ratio of the number of pink ribbons  to Orange ribbons 3 : 5

    => Pink ribbons = (3 /8) 8B = 3B

    Orange Ribbons = (5/8) 8B  = 5B

    Blue = 12B

    Pink = 3B

    Orange = 5B

    Total = 20B

    ratio of the number of blue ribbons to the number of pink ribbons to the number of orange ribbons​

    12B : 3B : 5B

    = 12 : 3 : 5

    Assumption : ratio of the number of orange ribbons  to Pink ribbons  = 3:5

    Then 12 : 5 : 3 would be final answer

    if  ratio of the number of Pink ribbons to blue ribbons  = 3 : 5

    P/12B = 3/5  => P = 36B/5

    O = 8B – 36B/5 = 4B/5

    12B : 36B/5  : 4B/5

    =  60B : 36B : 4B

    = 15 : 9 : 1
