    (a) 32 orange marbles

    the ratio of red : blue = 18 : 48 = 3 : 8 ( in simplest form )

    the ratio of green : orange = 3 : 8 ( equal ratio )

    divide green by 3 to obtain 1 part of ratio then multiply this value by 8 to obtain the amount of orange marbles

    3 parts → 12

    8 parts → 12 × \frac{8}{3} = 32 orange marbles
