# Emma's DVD Collection

Emma has a DVD collection. The ratio of drama DVDs to mystery DVDs in her collection is 7:3.

- Make a tape diagram that represents the situation above.
- If Emma has 28 drama DVDs, how many mystery DVDs does she have? Use your tape diagram to find the solution.

Ask yourself:

- Create a tape diagram with two strips of tape.
- Create one strip of tape to represent the drama DVDs. How many units should you divide the strip into?
- How would you create a second strip of tape to represent the mystery DVDs?
- How many DVDs does each unit in your tape diagram represent?
