Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Looks like they are taking the site down soon for maintenance. Here is a reference: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/ratio.htm http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/ratio.html or two.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For a simple ratio, it is a lot like a fraction. When there are more than two things, it gets more complex than that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That part, "hearing impaired students to the total number of students" determines the order of the ratio.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Norally I'd take time, go over it nice and slow, make sure you got all the points. But that might take more than the 20 min we have, so there is the short version and some references! I hope it is enough.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, both the references have clear examples. They should do a pretty good job of making this clear to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or, 5/24. Hehe. Transposed some numbers!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yah, now, if the numbers can reduce, like in a fraction, that is allowed. So 3/12 is 1/4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If it was complec, it woulld be things like, "In a bag of marbles there are six red, three green, and 1 blue. What is their ratio?" 6:3:1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yah, with 5/24, there is nothing to simplify. 5 is prime and 24 is not a multiple of 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my answer would be right i hope 5/24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15/24 is right. Sometimes they want it written 5:24, but both are right. If they did not specify, 5/24 is more common.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then that is 100% right!
