What is the best way to calculate ratio of two numbers? Particularly numbers which don't divide easily into each other and without the use of a calculator. Ex:
What is the ratio of 465.96 and 931.92?
Thanks

if nominator and denominator both as same decimal point you can multiple them by 100 or 1000 to get rid of the decimals and than divide.

Thanks for the replies. Is it a case that to get the ratio you then make a further division:
Step 1)
$\displaystyle \displaystyle\frac{465.96}{931.92}*\frac{100}{100} =\frac{46596}{93192}=0.5$
Step 2)
$\displaystyle \displaystyle\frac{1}{0.5}=2$
ans= 1:2
Is that the full method? Is there any variation in that?
