If two ratios have the same value when simplified, then they are called Equivalent Ratios.
Equivalent ratios can be obtained by multiplying or dividing both sides by the same non-zero number.
1/3 and 2/6 are equivalent ratios since they represent the same fraction.
The two ratios 8 : 24 and 4 : 12 are equivalent.
There are 10 dolls for every 40 children in a preschool. Then the ratio of the number of children to that of the dolls = 40:10 = 4:1
Correct Answer: D
Step 1: The ratio of winners to losers = 3/7
Step 2: 3/7= =6/14 [Multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 2.]
Step 3: 3/7 = = 9/21[Multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 3.]
Step 4: The two ratios equal to the ratio of winners to the losers are 6/14 and 9/21.
