# A bag contains orange blocks and pink blocks. The ratio of orange block to pink blocks is 2 to 11. If 121 pink blocks are in the bag, how many orange blocks are in the bag?

$22$ orange blocks.

#### Explanation:

So, there are $2$ orange blocks for every $11$ pink blocks.
Let's denote the amount of orange blocks as $x$.
$\frac{121}{11} = \frac{x}{2}$
Multiplying both sides by $22$, we get
$242 = 11 x$
Dividing both sides by $11$, we arrive at our answer:
$\frac{242}{11} = \frac{11 x}{11} \to 22 = x$
