If you have a circle graph 15 students like basketball 10 like soccer and 5 like softball. Write a ratio problem that relates to this graph and solve the problem.

ratio would be 5/6,1/6,1/3
how would a solve this if this is the right ratio.
Thank you so much for your help.

  • math -

    Those are not the right ratios
    5/6 + 1/6 already equals 1, leaving out an entire 1/3

    it should be 1/2, 1/3, 1/6

    divide the number, n, with the total

    n/total

    15/30, 10/30, 5/30 and simplify
