Can someone help me with this problem please?!!!!!
You have four credit cards. Each has a balance of $450.00, but their credit limits are $800.00, $1,200.00, $1,300.00, and $1,500.00. Paying off and closing which card would decrease your debt ratio? (1 point)

what defines a debt ratio? if memory serves it is balance/debt but i might have that upside down

is a rule of thumb, the bigger the bottom number, the lower the value; so you want the card with the smallest balance to get the biggest debt ratio owed

So would I want to pay off the card with the largest amount first?

"Paying off and closing which card would decrease your debt ratio?" Paying off any of them would decrease your debt ratio. Paying off which one would decrease it the most? the card with the highest debt ratio of course
