(e) 3 to 2
(D) 2 to 3
(E) 1 to 6
When setting up ratios, we can set up a ratio in fraction form. For example, if we were told the ratio of a to b is 1 to 2, we could say: a/b = ½.
Since we are given the ratio of 2 to 1/3, we can write this as:
2/(1/3)
We simplify this complex fraction by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 3, obtaining:
(2 x 3)/1 = 6/1
Thus, the equivalent ratio is 6 to 1.
Answer: A
