Answer:

w=6.6

18.6:24.8::3:4

Step-by-step explanation:

As\ we\ know\ that,\\(w+12):(3w+5)::3:4\\By\ the\ proportion\ method\ of\ multiplying\ the\ means\ and\ the\ extremes,\\we\ get,\\(w+12)*4=3*(3w+5)\\4w+48=9w+15\\48-15=9w-4w\\33=5w\\

w=33/5\\w=6.6

By\ substituting\ the\ value\ of\ w\ in\ the\ proportion. you\ get:\\(6.6+12)/(3*6.6+5)=3/4\\18.6/24.8=3/4\\18.6:24.8::3:4
