# How do you write and simplify "150 boys to 175 girls" as a ratio?

Nov 13, 2014

You can write the boys to girls ratio as

$150 : 175 \text{ }$ or $\text{ } \frac{150}{175}$,

which can be simplified as (by dividing by $25$)

$6 : 7 \text{ }$ or $\text{ } \frac{6}{7}$

I hope that this was helpful.
