Simple "B"

As it said painter/painting = 1/5
Then for every 1 painter there is 5 painting
hence, 13 * 5 will give the number of paintings.

Of course Option B.
As we are given ration of painters and paint in option 2, we can calculate the no. of paints by multiplying no. of artists and 5 (i.e 13*5=65) We don't need other alternate to calculate this.
   
User: 11/13/2010 11:11:56 AM
beeeee
   
User: 11/16/2010 1:28:03 PM
c,
as by knowing only no. of painters we won't be able to figure out no. of Oil Paintings and Only Ratio of painters to No of paintings won't help.
So we need both to calculate
