The length of a rectangle is 7and 1/2 inches and the width is 2 and 3/4 inches. What is the ratio, using whole numbers, of the length to the width?

L / W  = 

 

( 7 + 1/2)  / ( 2 + 3/4)  =

 

(15/2)  / ( 11/4 )  =

 

 { Invert the second fraction and multiply } 

 

(15/2)  * ( 4/11)   =

 

60 / 22    =  30 / 11  =    30 : 11
