SAT math Number and Operations - Ratios
Ratio: The relative size of two quantities expressed as the quotient of one divided by the other; the ratio of a to b is written as a:b or a/b
It is a comparison of the size of one number to the size of another number.
"70 students are in an amphitheater. The ratio of boys to girls is 3:4. How many boys are in the amphitheater "
This ratio gives you more information than just 3 to 4. You know that 3 out of 7 students are boys.
So, there are boys in the amphitheater.
Hope these helps!!
Thank you very much for your help Miranda!!
