    Another ratio question

    I'm trying to convert 45 seconds to 30 minutes as a fraction in simplest form. Would I make 30 minutes into seconds like 30 minutes equals 1800 seconds, so the ration to change to a fraction would be 45/1800?

    Air told me that the way I was going about it was correct. I made a new thread so that others can see. Thanks to Air for explaining the rules.

    Yes, you are correct but it can be simplified further by dividing the numerator and the denominator by 45.

    \frac{45}{1800} = \frac{1}{40}
