Question

1. What is the ratio of 10 notebooks to 5 ballpens in simplest form?​

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    2:1  or  2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    *** (Ratios can be written as " a : b", or can be written as a fraction " a / b".

     >> therefore 10/5 can be simplified to 2/1 )***

        For every 10 notebooks, there are 5 ballpens.

        Therefore, for every 2 notebooks there is 1 ballpen (The simplification).

    EXTRA:  

    **Also remember that the ratio of notebooks to ballpens cannot be reversed into ballpen to notebook ratio, because this would change the meaning.

      2/1 is not the same as 1/2 **
