Examples
Example 1:
Simplify the ratio 16:24
Solution
Step 1:
Extract the given data
16 / 24
Step 2:
Prime factors making by factor method
= 2*2*2*2 / 2*2*2*3
Step 3:
After canceling the like terms
= 2 / 3
Example 2:
Simplify the ratio to 18:22
Solution
Step 1:

Step 2:
Prime factors making by factor method
= 2*3*3 / 2*11
Step 3:
After canceling the like terms
= 3*3 / 11
= 9 / 11
Example 3:
Simplify the ratio 24:42
Solution
Step 1:
Extract the given data
