Star Power and Temperature

Star A and Star B

Consider two stars that are the same size (they have the same diameter), but have different surface temperatures. Letís say Star Aís temperature is 3000 K and Star Bís temperature is 4500 K.

Letís look at the ratio of Star Bís temperature to Star Aís temperature. A ďratioĒ is simply a fraction. So in this case the numerator of this fraction is the temperature of Star B and the denominator is the temperature of Star A. What, then, is the ratio of Star Bís temperature to Star Aís temperature? Enter numbers and decimal point only.
