# How to write a ratio as a fraction?

A Fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where, the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing. All fractions consist of a numerator and a denominator.

## 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.

**Explanation:**

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.
