**Solved Examples on Simplifying Ratios Calculator**

**Example 1:**

What is the simplest form of the ratio 30 **:** 45?

**Solution:**

The factors of 30 = 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30

The factors of 45 = 1, 3, 5, 6, 9,15, 45

So, the highest common factor of 30 and 45 is 15

Now, dividing 30 and 45 by 15, we get 2 and 3 respectively.

So, the simplified form of 30 **: **45 is 2 **: **3

**Example 2:**

What is the simplest form of the ratio 10 **:** 20?

**Solution:**

The factors of 10 = 1, 2, 5,10

The factors of 20 = 1, 2, 5, 4, 10, 20

So, the highest common factor of 10 and 20 is 10

Now, dividing 10 and 20 by 10, we get 1 and 2 respectively.

So, the simplified form of 10 **: **20 is 1 **: **2

**Example 3:**

What is the simplest form of the ratio 15 **:** 45?

**Solution:**

The factors of 15 = 1, 3, 5, 15

The factors of 45 = 1, 3, 5, 6, 9,15, 45

So, the highest common factor of 15 and 45 is 15

Now, dividing 15 and 45 by 15, we get 1 and 3 respectively.

So, the simplified form of 15 **: **45 is 1 **: **3
