    ratio

    this is my question:

    simplify 2days : 20 hours

    would the answer be, 48hours : 20 hours then simplify it = 24 hours : 10 hours then simplify it again = 12 hours : 5 hours?

    Yes. If we assume that you were to convert to hours.

    I think the simplest would be "1 day: 10 hours".
