I have no idea how to do this:
Express the ratio in simplest form.

5 yards to 24 feet

convert yards to feet: 12 x 5 = 60 ft.

Would the answer be 60:24 ? is this the simplest form if the answer is correct?

  • math -

    1 yard = 3 feet
    5 yards = 15 feet

    15/24 = 5/8

  • math -

    I can't believe I messed that up. Thx.

    You're welcome. :-)
