Since 17/20 are red, then 1(17/20)=20/20=3/20 are blue. This is equivalent to the decimal 0.15 or in percentage, 15%

I was thinking of functions who have differential equations in which the function is 'factorable' from first order differential equation. Eg: Functions satisfying the equation:
dydx=η(x)y(x)
Example functions:
y=eax,y=11x.. etc
Now, I notice that the solution to the differential equation is:
y=eηdx
But here is the interesting thing, the above expression has the same form of the function which is used when we solve linear differential equation

Edwin and Aldrin attempt to solve a problem that reduces to a quadratic equation. Edwin made a mistake only in the constant term of the quadratic equation and gives answers of - 3 and - 4 for the roots. Aldrin solving the same problem made a mistake in the coefficient of the first degree term and gives answers of 2 and 5 for the roots. If you check their solutions, what would be the correct quadratic equation?
