We will use the first amounts of red and white paints. We are asked to have white:red 20 : 4 Simplify that ratio

Simplify 20:4

how
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
Well first find the greatest common factor of 20 and 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
its 20

or 5
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
None, unfortunately because if you divide 20/5 = 4 (that's good) but 5/4 = 1.25 (not good)
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
You need to find a number that can be used to divide both 20 and 4 and get a whole number, not a decimal.

Factors of 20 - 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 Factors of 4 - 1, 2, 4

Can you determine the greatest common factor?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
The common factors between 20 and 4 are 1, 2, 4 what is the greatest number from those three integers?

Correct!

Now divide: 20 / 4 and 4 / 4
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
What are the quotients ?

5 and 1 @calculusxy
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
Yes so if 20 /4 = 5 then 5 represents the white paint and if 4 /4 = 1 then 1 represents the red paint. White:red = 5:1
anonymous
  • anonymous
so C!
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
Wait... it's red:white 1:5 which is D
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
Sorry my mistake. I misread it :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh its okay!
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
It's D... 1:5
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
It should be correct .
