    Answer:

    We conclude that the ratio of dog food to cat food is 2 : 1.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We know that the 5 bags of dog food and 2 bags of cat food weigh 45 pounds. 6 bags of dog food weighs 45 pounds. All 6 bags of dog food weigh the same and all bags of cat food weigh the same.

    We have

    6d=45\\\\d=7.5\\\\

    we get

    5d+2c=45\\\\5\cdot 7.5+2c=45\\\\2c=45-37.5\\\\2c=7.5\\\\c=3.75\\

    We get that the ratio of dog food to cat food is 7.5 : 3.75.

    We conclude that the ratio of dog food to cat food is 2 : 1.
