**Refer to a triangle. Express the ratio of the height to the base in simplest form.**

The simplest form is$20:17$ .

It is given,

Height of a triangle is$1m$ .

And,

Base of that triangle is$85cm$ .

Transformation of meter to centimetre,

1m$=100cm$

The ratio of the height to the base is,

$\frac{100}{85}$

To write the algebraic fraction in simplest form,

Divide the numerator and denominator with the common term.

So, in simplest form,

$\frac{100}{85}=\frac{20}{17}$

Therefore, the simplest form is$20:17$ .
