  • anonymous
if a decimal is what you are looking for then yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about if it is not going to be a decimal answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then you just leave it like 3/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
it depends on what the ratio is... sometimes your ratio will be getting smaller hence giving you a number larger than 1

There is alot you can do with ratios
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes there is... o kay so how would you solve this? if 34= 6 what would 54= (problem is 34:54)
anonymous
  • anonymous
I would write that as 34/6=54/x and cross multiply to solve for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
34x=54*6 x=324/34 x=9.53
