# How do you write three equivalent ratios for 18/6?

Dec 9, 2016

You have quite a choice as there is no limiting criteria. I have selected the following:

$\frac{3}{1} \text{; "9/3"; } \frac{36}{18}$

#### Explanation:

Write the ratios in fractional form

Initial condition:$\text{ } \frac{18}{6}$

1^("st")" Equivalent "->(18-:6)/(6-:6) = 3/1

2^("nd")" Equivalent "-> (18-:2)/(6-:2)=9/3

3^("rd")" Equivalent "->(18xx2)/(6xx2) = 36/12
