ms Sue I was not sure how to do a response to you but my prior question was the following and you had answered to take the total number of students and make this the denominator and the history majors the numerator which I did and makes this 300/1225 so then to get the ratio I divide? to get 0.24489
the bar and graph shows the number of students by major in the college of arts and sciences. What is the ratio of history majors to the total number of students in the college?

The ratio is usually expressed as a fraction.
300/1225 = 12/49 or 12:49
It's close to 1 out of 4 or 1:4
