Thanks you're example help me understand my homework.

So this is another problem on ratio's but set up a bit different.

Says

What is the ratio of 65 days to 50 days.

A)13:10

B)10:13

C)50:65

D)65:15

E)15:65

I did what you say. I put a division sign where "to" is.

I try and divide them by 2 first.

65/2=32.5

50/2=25. So 2 don't work

I try 3's.

65/3=21.6666

50/3=16.666 So 3 won't work.

I try 4's

65/4=16.25

50/4=12.5 So 4 won't work either.

I try 5's.

65/5=13

50/5=10.

You can't reduce 13/10 So the answer would be A)13:10 am i correct?

Good choice on call of duty example. i actually own that game lol modern warfare and mw2.

My next problem.

A swim team won 8 meets out of 12. What is the ratio of lost meets to total meets?

A) 8/12

B) 3/1

C) 3/12

D) 1/3

E) 4/8

I will now try and solve on piece of paper, i will type my answer in a minute or more lol. time to divide by 2's first

Okay I'm doing something wrong lol.

8 of 12.

8+4=12

So 4 over 12.

4/2=2

12/2=6

2 over 6 isn't up there.

So 2/2=1

6/2=3

Answer would be 1/3 right or wrong?

Another problem for you to correct, you are good math tutor lol.

A men's basketball team won 24 games and lost 32. What is the ratio of games lost to the number of games played?

A) 32:24

B) 4:3

C) 3:4

D) 4:7

E) 3:7

So they wanna know how many games lost to the number of games played total. I add 24+32= 56 games played altogether.

so it would be 32 over 56.

I try my 2's first.

32/2=16

56/2=28

I try 2 again

16/2=8

28/2=14

I try 2 again.

8/4=4

14/2=7

I try 2 again.

4/2=2

7/2=3.5 2's don't work here.

So the answer would be D) 4:7 correct?

Wanna help me with inverse rates now? I don't get how to solve the problem. They give me answer but i still can't get answer on my cellphone calculator.

1) Daniel and chuck can pick 40 bushels of apples in 9 hours. If paul helps pick, how long will it take to pick 40 bushels of apples?

They gave me answer in the back says 6 hours. I try on calculator and can't seem to get 6 hours.

Wanna show me the secret formula?lol
