fifteen out of 25 students in Mrs. Smith's class are boys. what is the ratio of boys to girls?

i put 1 to 6. is that right?

  • math - ,

    Nope.

    25 - 15 = 10

    15/10 = 3 to 2

  • math - ,

    There are 15 boys. Out of 25 students, that means there are 10 girls. Reduce 15/10 for your answer.

  • math - ,

    15/25= 25-15= 10 girls
    > 10:15
    15/25= 25-10= 15 boys

    10 divided by 5 = 2
    15 divided by 5 = 3

    the answer is 2:3

    I think...

  • math - ,

    No, Raluca, it's 3:2.

  • math - ,

    The problem states that there are more boys to girls. The student is to find the ratio of BOYS to GIRLS.

    Raluca got it backwards. There are 3 boys for every 2 girls.
