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

    Well first find the greatest common factor of 20 and 4

    None, unfortunately because if you divide 20/5 = 4 (that's good) but 5/4 = 1.25 (not good)

    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?

    The common factors between 20 and 4 are 1, 2, 4 what is the greatest number from those three integers?

    Now divide: 20 / 4 and 4 / 4

    What are the quotients ?

    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
