1. Janine wants to write the ratio of oranges to apples.How does she know whether to write 3:4 or 4:3?

Answer:

4:3 because, the way the question went was oranges to apples

because there are 4 oranges and 3 apples!

2. Your friend missed the class that ratios were introduced

use an example and draw a diagram to explain the difference

between part to part ratio and part to whole ratio.

Answer:

Part to Part-Comparing a part to another part of the group.

For question 2, all you have to do is make a diagram (picture) showing part to part/part to whole ratio.
