A ratio is the relationship (sometimes denoted as the quotient) of 2 separate quantities.

Therefore, since the relationship is the number of seventh graders to the number of eighth graders.

$$=\frac{24\hspace{1mm}\text{seventh graders}}{30\hspace{1mm}\text{eighth graders}}$$

Just like normal fractions, one should simplify such that the greatest common factor of both the numerator and denominator is 1.

$$\frac{24\hspace{1mm}\text{seventh graders}}{30\hspace{1mm}\text{eighth graders}}\div\frac{6}{6}=\frac{4\hspace{1mm}\text{seventh graders}}{5\hspace{1mm}\text{eighth graders}}$$
