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?

Math-200
history-300
english-400
science-150
other- 175

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

I've looked at a lot of these questions and I'm disappointed that people don't appreciate Ms. Sue at all. She takes a lot of time out of her day to help students get better grades. Thanks Ms. Sue, for being a great tutor.
