    maths...

    160 people live in a village. Of these, 60 are adults and 100 are children.
    Work out the ratio of adults to children in lowest terms.
    How do I do this?

    60/100 = 6/10 = 3/5 = 3:5

    Find a common number that goes into both. So 20.
    Then 60 / 20 = 3
    and 100 / 20 = 5

    3 : 5 ratio

    my maths a-level says yes

    remember order is important.

    it said adults to children

    5:3 means children to adults so would be the wrong answer
