    Of the answer choices, it must be the last one. 4/16 = 0.25, not 0.4. 12/3 and 80/32 are both greater than 1 whole, so it can't be those because 0.4 is less than that. 24/60 is correct. 6 x 10 = 60, and 6 x 4 = 24, meaning it is equivalent to 4/10, which, of course, means 24/60 is equal to 0.4.
