This is what I did:

Tic Tac Toc

1 : 3 mulitply by 2

2 : 5 multiply by 3

New Ratio

2 : 6

6 : 15

Making tic to toc 2/15- Does this not work?

If 1 tic is 3 tacs (1 tic = 3 tacs) how can tic be smaller than tac as implied by your proportion of tic to tac as 1:3??? You got the translate english into math part of the question wrong. Try to write down everything you read into equation.

1 tic is 3 times tac means 1 Tic = 3 Tac so ratio of Tic to Tac is 3:1 not 1:3.
