18 : 26 right.?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right. So when we want simplest form, we have to divide both numbers by the same number we choose, it the answer has to come out as a whole number not decimal. Is there a number that divides evenly between these two?

2 @FortyTheRapper
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Correct, so let's divide both of those numbers by 2 to get a new ratio, and work from that one

Okai 18 divided by 2 is 9 26 divided by 2 is 13
anonymous
  • anonymous
so would it be 9 over 13..?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right 9:13 is the new ratio Now, can you think of a number that goes evenly between those two numbers, or is there anymore?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nope
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
So that means 9:13 is the simplistic form of that ratio
