    Looks 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.

    For a simple ratio, it is a lot like a fraction. When there are more than two things, it gets more complex than that.

    That part, "hearing impaired students to the total number of students" determines the order of the ratio.

    A to B means A on top, B on the bottom.

    Norally 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.

    Well, both the references have clear examples. They should do a pretty good job of making this clear to you.

    Yah, now, if the numbers can reduce, like in a fraction, that is allowed. So 3/12 is 1/4.

    If 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

    Yah, with 5/24, there is nothing to simplify. 5 is prime and 24 is not a multiple of 5.

    5/24 is right. Sometimes they want it written 5:24, but both are right. If they did not specify, 5/24 is more common.

    they want it in fraction
