    yep... ratios are another way of writing fractions... simplifying is just a case of finding the largest number that divides into both numbers... in this case 4:6 it was 2

    A proportion is two equal ratios (think of them as fractions) so 40 feet is to 60 feet as 4 feet is to 6 feet 40/60 = 4/6
