1/25 IS the ratio of 1 to 25. There is not much you can say about it.

Can it be reduced to simpler terms? No! because there no factor common to the numerator (1) and the denominator (25) which you can simplify.

So 1/25 is in its reduced form.

Case of the ratio 2/100

It is clear that we can write the numerator as 1*2. To hope to reduce the ratio to simpler terms we must be able to find a factor that is common to the numerator and the denominator.

Although 100 =1*100=2*50=4*25=4*5*5 it is clear that the only factors common to 2 and 100 are 1, and 2.

To take 1 amounts to doing nothing, but if we take 2 we can write

2/100= (2*1)/(2*50)

Simplifying by 2 (the two 2 cancel each other) we get

2/100=1/50

That is the reduced form.

To convert a fraction to lowest terms, we must divide the numerator (the top number) and the denominator (the bottom number) by a common number until we can't reduce it any more. A method for doing this is to factor the numerator and denominator by their common factors.

So let's factor 711 and 22.

1 x 711

9 x 79

3 x 3 x 79

I don't think I can factor 79. We should check the numbers from 2 up to the square root of 79, or approximately 9.

Factoring 22,

1 x 22

2 x 11

Unfortunately, none of the factors of 711 are common with the factors of 22, so it is already in its lowest terms, and cannot be reduced.

Good luck,

Paul

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.

An expense ratio is how investors compare
different expenses across different funds. The expense ratio is the 12b-1 fee
with the management fee and any other fund expenses and then this total is
divided by the average daily net assets.

6/15 + 2/15 = 8/15 which is already in lowest terms.

Most of the time a ratio is nothing but the division of two quantities. If you have a fraction key, enter one term of the ratio as numerator, and the second term as denominator. If you do not have a fraction key just use the division key.
