Question #1
The ratio of 7 dimes to 3 quarters.
Question #2
The ratio of 5 3/5 to 2 1/10
Can someone please show me how you come up with the answer to both equation.
7 dimes = 70 cents
3 quarters = 75 cents
both 70 and 75 are divisible by 5, so:
70:75 = 14:15
14 and 15 have no common divisor so this last is in simplist form.
turn into improper fractions with the same denominator, which in thisQuestion #2
The ratio of 5 3/5 to 2 1/10
case turn both into 1/10's
5 3/5 = (50+6)/10 = 56/10
2 1/10 = (20+1)/10 = 21/10.
so:
(5 3/5) : (2 1/10)=(56/10) : (21/10)
this is:
56:21.
Now both 56 and 21 are divisible by 7 so divide both by 7:
56:21 = 8:3
and as 8 and 3 have no comon factor larger that 1 this is the lowest form
of this ratio.
