Please explain how you do ratios

A ratio can be simplified by dividing both sides of the ratio by the Highest Common Factor (HCF). The highest common factor is the largest number that goes into both numbers of your ratio. In example 1 you are asked to simplify the ratio 6:8. Here the HCF is 2 so divide both sides of the ratio by 2 to give 3:4.

How do i do eqivalent ratios

Ratios are like fractions: to make an equivalent ratio you simply multiply both sides of the ratio by the same non-zero number. 1:2 is equivalent to 2:4 (both sides multiplied by 2). 10:12 is equivalent to 5:6 (both sides multiplied by 1/2).

The subscription fee to a club for men and women are in the ratio 4:3. Two men and five women pay a total sum of $460. What is the subscription fee for each man?

Let m represent the subscription rate for a man, and w the subscription rate for a woman.
m/w=4/3, or m=(4/3)w.
2 men and 5 women paid 460. Thus
Substitute (4/3)w for m, in 2m+5w=460.
This gives an equation in the unknown w. Solve for w
2(4/3)w +5w=460 or (23/3)w=460. Answer is w=60
Use this value in the relation m=(4/3)w to get m=80.
Check m/w=80/60=4/3

The ratio of a to b is 2 to 5 and the ratio of b to c is 3 to 4, what is the ratio of a to c

To solve this, you need to multiply the ratios together.
(2/5)*(3/4) = A/C
So (2*3)/(5*4) = A/C
6/20 = A/C
You can reduce that be dividing both sides by 2
3/10 = A/C

Here is an example:
Let X = 3
The problem states that A/B = 2/5
So let A = 2X & B = 5X
A = 2*(3) = 6
B = 5*(3) = 15
Now check the ratio: 6/15 = 2/5. The same as what was given.
Now lets look at the ratio for B/C. The given ratio for B/C was 3/4
Using the value of B that we just solved we get:
B = 15
C = (4/3)*15 = 20
Check the ratio.
15/20 = 3/4
Now we have the values for each of the variables
A = 6
B = 15
C = 20
The ratio of A/C is 6/20
6/20 can be reduced to 3/10 be dividing both numbers by 2
