REDUCE RATIOS TO LOWEST TERM

6) C. 1:3

7) E. 9:8

8) B. 3:4

9) A. 4:3

10) D. 2:1

Step-by-step explanation:

6) Both 5 and 15 can be divided into 5:

5 ÷ 5 = 1

15 ÷ 5 = 3

Hence, 5:15 can be reduced to 1:3.

7) Both 18 and 16 are divisible by 2. To get its reduced ratio to its lowest term, divide both numbers by 2:

18 ÷ 2 = 9

16 ÷ 2 = 8

Hence, 18 boys to 16 girls (18:16) can be reduced to 9:8

8) Both 15 and 20 are divisible by 5. To get its reduced ratio to its lowest term, divide both numbers by 5:

15 ÷ 5 = 3

20 ÷ 5 = 4

Hence,  15 patches for every 20 bookmarks (15:20) can be reduced to 3:4

9) 2 dozens is equivalent to 24. Both the numbers of 24 and 18 are divisible by 2:

24 ÷ 2 = 12

18 ÷ 2 = 9

12:9 is not yet reduced to its lowest term, since they are divisible by 3:

12 ÷ 3 = 4

9 ÷ 3 = 3

Hence, the lowest term of 2 dozens to 18 things when reduced is 4:3.

10) Both 10 and 5 are divisible by 2. To get its reduced ratio to its lowest term, divide both numbers by 5:

10 ÷ 5 = 2

5 ÷ 5 = 1

Hence, its lowest term is 2:1
