I have never seen a ratio reference like this. Rounding up it should be 4.5 to 16. What is the application?

5.5:4, 11:8, 22:16, & 44:32 *all* have the same ratio. Additional equal ratios can be determined by multiplying *both* the 11 and the 8 by any number. Example (1): "5" 5 x 11 and 5 x 8 for a 55:40 ratio. It is much more desirable to reduce the numbers to lowest whole form - hence expressed as 11:8 ("8 to 11"). A second example using "3/4" (or the decimal equal .75) .75 x 11 and .75 x 8 for an 8.25:6 ratio. Again, whole numbers are preferable unless they get very large.

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).

Yes. It is also equivalent 4/25

16/100=8/50=4/25

The last fraction is the simplest form of all those fractions.

16/100=8/50=4/25

14=1*14

28=2*14

13/28=(1*14)/(2*14)=(1/2)*(14/14)=(1/2)*1=1/2

14 is half of 28

28=2*14

13/28=(1*14)/(2*14)=(1/2)*(14/14)=(1/2)*1=1/2

14 is half of 28

By hand you can write every integer you wish as a fraction with denominator 1. 4=4/1, 13=13/1. You can even generate all the equivalent fractions of any integer, for example -4=(-8/2)=8/(-2)=-8/2=-12/3=...

However, simple calculators are designed with a feature called automatic simplification. That is why ever result that is a fraction that is equivalent to an integer is written as that integer. Fractions are reduced to their simplest form.** Call it a design flaw if you want but that is how it is.**

Here is some help

180deg is equivalent to Pi radians

Take some angle. Its measure in degrees is say x_deg, Its measure expressed in radians is x_rad.

The fraction of 180 deg that the angle represents is equal to the fraction of PI that this angle represents.

Conclusion: the ratio x_deg/ 180 deg must be equal to the ratio of x_rad/PI

x_deg/180 deg=x_rad/PI

Isolate X-rad in the above equation. Some will tell you to cross multiply.

x_rad=(Pi/180)*x_deg

Application: x_deg=-525 in radians?

x_rad= (PI/180)*(-525)=-(525/180)*PI

Keep the value (525/180) as a fraction reduced to its simplest form. The result is 35/12

Hello,

Read the definition of equivalent ratios. Choose the numbers a and b such that a/b=7/17. (Here is a HINT: The operation to perform to obtain a from 7 and b from 17 is the inverse operation that you use to reduce a fraction to its simplest form.)

Once you dtermine how you are going to construct a and b, the calculator can then help you express each one as a single number.

Sorry I cannot be more specific: You have to make a little effort to understand what you are supposed to be doing.
