Notice something, RP

If

5/10   =  1/2        then it is also true that  the ratio of the numerators to the ratio of the denominators is the same....that is :

5/1  =  10/2

This implies   that

a /b   =  11/20      means that

a / 11  =  b / 20

Do you see this??

2) A model is made of a car. The car is 3 meters long and the model is 4 centimeters long. What is the ratio of the length of the car to the length of the model?

Equate units in terms of centimeters

3 m  =   300  cm

Ratio  :   actual length  / model length   =    300 cm / 4 cm   =   75 / 1   =  75 : 1
