    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Red:black = 1:1

    Red cards = x

    Black cards =x

    x + x = 48

    2x = 48

    x = 48/2

    x = 24

    No. of red cards = 24

    No of black cards = 24

    Now 8 red cards are removed

    So, No. of red cards = 24 – 8 =16

    Red: Black = 16:24

    =\frac{16}{24}=\frac{2}{3}

    Red: Black = 2:3
