    We can write the ration in the question as 7:8.

    If the new value of trucks is 21, we can divide by the original to find how many times it grew by.

    21 / 7 = 3

    Now, we can multiply this to how the original amount of cars to find the new amount.

    8 * 3 = 24

    Now, write the new ratio.

    21:24

    Hope This Helped! Good Luck!
