These are my 3 part to part ratios:

Green to Pink
3:2

Blue to Purple
3:1

Silver to Orange
1:1

Here are my 2 part to whole ratios:

Gold to Total
1:12

Green to Total
3:12

My two 3 part ratios

Blue to Purple to Gold
3:1:1

Green to Silver to Pink
3:1:2

The ratio I have chosen to represent is the Silver to Orange ratio-

Ratio Notation -

Silver to Orange
1:1

Fraction -
1/1

Decimal -
1.00

Percent -
100%

How to make equivalent fractions:
Equivalent fractions are just equal fractions. So to
make an equivalent fractions, whatever you do to one side, you just have to do to the other side. It's that simple!

For example, this picture shows the number of green crayons, to the number of total crayons. So to get an equivalent fraction, i just multiplied both the green and total by 2. You may also divide the two different numbers if you like.

Here are 3 questions you guys could answer:

What is the ratio for mixed coloured crayons to total crayons?

What would the percent be, for blue crayons to green crayons?

What would the decimal be, for pink crayons to total crayons?

BOB CONTINUED

Some mistakes i made on my test, was not taking the time to read the questions properly, or to take the time to find more or better answers.

Here is an example of my mistake:

15. Write each ratio in lowest terms.

D) 18:27=6:9. That is lower terms, but not the lowest. The lowest terms would be 2:3

I will remember to take more time on tests and not rush every answer. I should have taken more time on each question, then using the first answer i come up with.

Here are some questions that gave me some difficulty to answer:

John is able to stop 35% of the shots on goal. If he faces 16 shots on goal, how many goals would be likely to score on him?

Four students are running for student council president. Of 20 students polled, 8 chose Bob, 3 chose Gail, 2 chose Will, and the rest chose Kate. What is the ratio of votes for girl to votes for boys in the student council election? Express the ratio in lowest terms.
