ISBN 9780547587776 # Using the archery information above, compare the number of misses to the number of shots using a ratio. Write the ratio in three ways.

The ratio of the number of misses to the number of shots is$\frac{4}{15}$ .

The three ways to write the ratio are given by$\frac{4}{15},\text{4 to 15,and 4:15}$ .

See the step by step solution

## Step 1 . Given

Given that:

The number of arrows shot is 60.

The number of hits is 44.

The number of misses is 16.

## Step 2 . To determine

We have to find the ratio of the number of misses to the number of shots.

Then we have to write the ratio in three ways.

## Step 3 . Calculation

We present the ratio of number of misses to number of shots as a fraction,

$\frac{\text{number of misses}}{\text{number of shots}}=\frac{16}{60}$.

Then we simplify the fraction,

$\frac{\text{number of misses}}{\text{number of shots}}=\frac{4}{15}$. [Divide out the common factors]

After that, we write the ratio in three ways:

$\frac{4}{15},\text{4 to 15,and 4:15}$.

So, the required ratio of number of misses to the number of shots =.$\frac{4}{15}$

Three ways are given by$\frac{4}{15},\text{4 to 15,and 4:15}$ . ### Want to see more solutions like these?
