Subject: ratios Name: Mike Question: Simplify these ratios. 7 1/4 inches to 2 feet. $0.02 per $1.75
Thanks,
In you mulyiply both numbers in ratio by the same nonzero number, the ratio remains unchanged. This is exactly the same process as multiplying the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same nonzero number. Hence for your second problem, In the first problem express both numbers in the same units (probably inches) and express the number on the left as a fraction. Can you now finish the problem so tht both numbers in the ratio are integers? Penny
