The ticket booth at a school play sells 170 adult tickets and 150 student tickets. Find the ratio of adults to students. Write your answer as a fraction in simplest form.

Accepted Solution

The ration is 170 adults:150 children, or 170/150We can factor out a 10 from both numbers, which leaves us with
17 adults/15 children.17 and 15 have no other factors, so that's the smallest ratio we can have.
