How to write a ratio as a fraction?
Answer: We can write a ratio as a fraction by writing the left side of the ratio as the numerator, and the right side as the denominator.
Let us proceed step by step.
We can understand better by taking a suitable example.
Let us consider there are 5 balls and 6 bats are placed in a box.
Then, the ratio of the total number of balls to bats will be 5 : 6.
Let's take the left side of the ratio i.e., 5 as the numerator, and the right side of the ratio i.e., 6 as the denominator.
Hence, the fraction will be numerator/denominator i.e., 5/6
We can not reduce 5/6 further.
Hence the ratio of the total number of balls to bats i.e., 5 : 6 will be 5/6 as a fraction.
