Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

5/8 so out of 8 cars 5 are foreign made

so 145 foreign are made which is 145/5=29*5 and we know that if for every 8 cars 5 are foreign to keep the ration we multiply the 8 by 29 which is 232 cars in all

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
