#### Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation/ratio by $\textcolor{red}{60}$ to solve for $r$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{60} \times \frac{r}{60} = \textcolor{red}{60} \times \frac{40}{50}$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{60}} \times \frac{r}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{60}}}} = \frac{2400}{50}$

$r = 48$
