# What are ratios that are equal and simplify to the same ratio?

They are equivalent ratios.

### What are two equivalent ratios of 610?

Students learn to find equal ratios by first writing the given ratio as a fraction, then multiplying the numerator and denominator of the fraction by the same number. For example, to find two ratios that are equal to 1:7, first write 1:7 as the fraction 1/7. Next, multiply both the numerator and denominator of 1/7 by 2, to get 2/14, or 2:14, and multiply the numerator and denominator of 1/7 by 3, to get 3/21…

### How can you tell if two ratios are equivalent?

Ratios can be expressed as fractions. For example 1:7 can be written 1/7. Just as a fraction can be converted into an equivalent fraction by multiplying (or dividing) both the numerator and denominator by the same number then the same process can be applied to ratios. To compare two ratios then convert either the first or second number of the ratio so that both ratios have the same number. A direct comparison can then be…

### Steps in ratio analysis?

Steps in 'Ratio Analysis' Step 1: Collection of information, which are relevant from the financial statements and then to calculate different ratios accordingly. Step 2: Comparison of computed ratios with the past ratios of the same organisation or with the industry ratios. Step 3: Interpretation, drawing of inferences and report-writing Classification of Ratios

### Why do the ratios 16 to 9 and 4 to 3 describe different things when they are the same number?

The two ratios, 16 to 9 and 4 to 3, are not the same number. Dividing the first number in the ratio by the second number in the ratio provides a decimal equivalent value. 16 divided by 9 does not equal 4 divided by 3. 16 to 8 and 4 to 2 however are examples of equivalent ratios. When the first number in the pair is divided by the second number in the pair, the…

### How can you determinate if two ratios are equivalent?

Multiply the antecedent of each ratio by the consequent of the other. If the products are equal, the ratios are equivalent. For example, given the two ratios A:B and C:D, if the product of A and D equals the product of B and C, then A:B::C:D (A is to B as C is to D). Two ratios a:b and c:d are equivalent if the crossproducts are the same. That is a/b = c/d if and…

### Is 3 to 8 equal to 6.5 to 12?

3 to the 8th is equal to 6561. 6.5 to the 12th is equal to 5688009063. They are not equal. ------------------------------- If you are referring to ratios: The ratios can be re-written as fractions: 3 : 8 = 3/8 6.5 : 12 = 6.5/12 You now have two fractions to compare: make them equivalent fractions with the same denominator and compare the numerators: 3/8 = (3Ã—3/(8Ã—3) = 9/24 6.5/12 = (6.5Ã—2)/(12Ã—2) = 7/24 9 is…

### Simplify the ratio 0.5 to 0.75?

Begin with the ratio 0.5 : 0.75 Multiply both parts of the ratio by 2: 1 : 1.5 You can multiply by two again: 2 : 3 Both of these are simplified compared to the original. Which one is used depends on how the ratio is being used. Some ratios are easier to work with and understand with whole number so 2 : 3 would be used. In other cases, using 1 as part of…

### What are three ways you can prove that triangles are similar?

Two triangles are similar if: two pairs of corresponding angles are equal, or one pair of angles is equal, and the ratios of the lengths of sides adjacent to the angles are the same, or the lengths of the three pair of corresponding sides are in the same ratio. For the first point, if two angles of one triangle are equal to two of the other, then the third angles = 180 - sum of…

### What is the difference between the law of definite proportions and the law of multiple proportions?

Both laws have to do with relating to Dalton's Atomic Theory. The only difference is that the Law of Definite Proportions deals with elements combining to form ONE compound in a simple whole number ratio. The Law of Multiple Proportions is comparing the same 2 elements that make up 2 different compounds, the division of these 2 ratios should equal a simple whole number ratio. For example: Carbon and oxygen can combine to form carbon…

### What does equivalent ratio mean?

Two ratios such as 8:20 and 6:15 are equivalent when they can be reduced to the same set of numbers through division or multiplication with a common factor. in this case dividing the numbers in the first ratio by 4 and the ones in the second ratio by 3 reduces them both to 2:5. Therefore 8:20 and 6:15 are equivalent ratios.
