How?

3. myininaya

$\frac{number of tickets Jeanne sold}{number of tickets Jake sold}$

4. myininaya

since it is says to find the ratio of the number of tickets Jeanne sold to the number of tickets Jake sold

5. myininaya

so Jean sold 9 and Jake sold 42 so actually we have $\frac{9}{42}$ to get one of the answers above you need to reduce this fraction

6. myininaya

wait that is weird this answer is listed twice

7. myininaya

once as 9/42 and the other in reduced form

8. myininaya

ok it does say simplest form so yeah reduce that fraction
