    5+3+12 = 20

    Red = 5/20

    = 5/20 of 720ml

    = 180ml of red paint

    Yellow = 3/20

    = 3/20 of 720ml

    = 108ml of yellow paint

    Therefore, there is 72ml more red paint than yellow paint

    Ratios are easy, put an "X" after each number then add up. 20x=720. x=36. Solve the difference.
