    ok im thinking its either 2/3 or 3/2 cause I already knew that 12 in. = 1 ft. and I know its 2 feet cause 12=12=24 am I right? what would the answer exactly be> 2/3 or 3/2?

    So one thing to remember in ratios is: \(\sf\Large a~ to ~b = \frac{a}{b}\)

    Also note that we have to make sure they have the same units as we can not compare apples to oranges.
