In this lesson on ratios, Professor Perez teaches how to write ratios and reduce them. Examples of ratios with whole numbers, decimals, and mixed numbers are presented, along with two different techniques to solve them. The first technique involves using the clearing fractions method, while the second involves writing the ratio as a division problem and multiplying by the reciprocal. Professor Perez provides clear steps to follow and encourages viewers to practice these methods.
Learn about what ratios are, ways to write them, and how to reduce them.
