Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need a number which will divide exactly into 40 and 16 to get a smaller ratio. for example we could divide each by 4 this will give 40/4 and 16 / 4 = 10:4 But there is another higher number which will give one of the above options what do you think it is ?
