Could someone help me with the ratio of 1,128,729 to 307,006,550. I think its 272:1 , but was told that's not correct.

Thanks

2. 307,006,550 / 1,128,700 = 272.000132...
307,006,550 / 1,128,701 = 271.999892...
.......
307,006,550 / 1,128,729 = 271.993144...

3. Hi patriot51, Your answer was wrong because the question asks for the reciprocal of 272
