Solution



To find:
• The ratio of \(\frac{1}{3} and \frac{3}{8}\), in the form of another ratio

Approach and Working:
• \(\frac{1}{3} : \frac{3}{8} = \frac{1}{3} * \frac{8}{3} = \frac{8}{9}\)= 8 to 9

Hence, the correct answer is option D.

Answer: D

E. 9 to 8

Ratios of fractions are just like ratios of integers.
\(A:B = \frac{A}{B}\)

So \((\frac{1}{3}:\frac{3}{8})=\frac{(\frac{1}{3})}{(\frac{3}{8})}=\frac{1}{3}*\frac{8}{3}=\frac{8}{9}=(8:9)\)

Answer D
