    1 pair of canvas is $7, therefore
    6 pairs of canvas will be $ 42. while 
    1 pair of leather shoe is $35, thus
    3 pairs of leather shoes is $105 
    Hence the ratio of the cost of canvas shoes to that of leather shoe will be;
    $42 : $105 (simplifying)
    = 6 :15
    = 2: 5; therefore the ratio is 2/15
