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.

okay thank you
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
For a simple ratio, it is a lot like a fraction. When there are more than two things, it gets more complex than that.
amber15
  • amber15
oh okay
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
That part, "hearing impaired students to the total number of students" determines the order of the ratio.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
A to B means A on top, B on the bottom.

  • amber15
oh okay

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.

  • amber15
it's okay i hope i figure it out
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Well, both the references have clear examples. They should do a pretty good job of making this clear to you.

thank you

it wouldnt be 4/25 would it
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
It would.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Or, 5/24. Hehe. Transposed some numbers!
amber15
  • amber15
okay
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yah, now, if the numbers can reduce, like in a fraction, that is allowed. So 3/12 is 1/4.
amber15
  • amber15
it dont want me simplify
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
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
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yah, with 5/24, there is nothing to simplify. 5 is prime and 24 is not a multiple of 5.
amber15
  • amber15
so my answer would be right i hope 5/24
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
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.
amber15
  • amber15
they want it in fraction
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Then that is 100% right!
amber15
  • amber15
thank you

np. have fun!
