## Comparing Ratios – Example

Q. Emma scored 80 marks out of 100 in a subject and her friend Frieda scored 40 marks out of 50 in a subject. Who performed better of the two?

Solution:

The ratio of marks scored by Emma to total marks = 80 : 100 = 80

100

The ratio of marks scored by Freida to total marks = 40 : 50 = 40

50

Reducing the fractions to their lowest forms,

 Fraction 1 Fraction 2 80 ÷ 20 4=100 ÷ 20 5 40 ÷ 10 4=50 ÷ 10 5

Since, 4 = 4,

5 5

both the ratios 80 : 100 and 40 : 50 are equal.

By comparing both the ratios, we can conclude that Emma has done as well as Frieda.
