1010: 3030

is it i think


step-by-step explanation:

6 (donuts) divided by 3 is 2.

so 2/3 means 2 times 2, which is 4/6.

you get two and your friend gets four.

15 games will be played.

Step-by-step explanation:

The number of teams is 16.

We know there is one winner, so the number of losers is:

16 - 1 = 15

Since each game results in one loser, the number of games is equal to the number of losers, hence the number of games is 15.

Do you know the answer?
