A standard IMAX screen measures 22 m long by 16 m wide, thus resulting in a width to length ratio of 16/22 . Which of the following is equivalent to 16/22 ? A. A.0.72 B. 1.375 C. 7.27 D. 13.75
Well, is 16/22 bigger or smaller than 1?
which is bigger 16 or 22?
so when you divide a number by something larger, you get an answer that is less than 1. Just like if you have 4 slices of pizza to share evenly between 5 people. Does anyone get a whole slice? no. that would be 4/5 = 0.8 or so. So if 22>16 then 16/22 <1
i dont understand the last part 16/22 <1
That means that the fraction 16/22 is less than 1. You are trying to divide the number 16 into 22 equal parts. the equal part would be less than one since you are dividing by a number greater than 16. 16/16 = 1 16/15>1 16/17<1 16/22<1
