ok - suppose you had $10 and wanted to give it to 2 people in a ratio of 2:3
how would you divide it?
Im not sure ive never been good at ratios so i dont know
Ratios are about fractions
To get the fractions you ADD together the 2 numbers in the ratio - that gives you the denominator
If you want to divide $20 in a ration of 1:9 then add together the numbers
then the fractions are 1/10 and 9/10 to give the ratio
so $20 x 1/10 = $2
and $20 x 9/10 = $18 these are in ration 1:9
