Answer:

105 boats

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the total number of boats in the marina.

If Two-thirds of the boats in the marina are white.

Fraction of the remaining boat= 1-⅔ =⅓

4/7 of the remaining boats are blue.

4/7 of ⅓ are blue

4/7 X ⅓ = 4/21 are blue

Fraction of Red Boats =

1-(Proportion of white Boats +Proportion of Blue Boats)

= 1-(2/3+4/21)=1/7

If there are 15 red boats,

1/7 of the total boats =15

1/7 X x=15

x=15X7

x=105

There are 105 boats in total on the marina
