    Morgan 10:1 Mann

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In this scenario,

    Morgan has 5 jelly beans for every 3 that Kira has,

    Kira has 6 jelly beans for every 1 that Mann has.

    Therefore, we can multiply both Morgan and Kira's jellybean count by 2 to match Kira's ratio with Mann while still maintaining the ratio with Morgan like so

    Morgan 10 : : 6 Kira

    Kira 6 : : 1 Mann

    Now that we have the same amount for Kira we can see that the Ratio between Morgan and Mann is 10:1

    5:3 and 6:1

    The 3 and 6 here represent the same number of sweets because they are for the same person, so you need to find a common multiple of these two numbers.

    The lowest one is 12. This means the ratios now become:

    20:12 and 12:2

    This means the ratio of Morgan's to Mann's is 20:2
