Jack has two jobs, his annual income from the first job being $37,600 and that of the second job being $9,400. Write the relation of the second income to the first in ratio format.
When writing a relation we will write as a fraction or comparison of two numbers as: `a/b`
Since the relation is the 2nd job to the first we will write: `9400/37600.`
We always make sure we can simplify our fractional answers by determining a GCF if possible. In this case 9400 is the GCF as both can be divided evenly. Therefore when we divide both by 9400, we get: `1/4`
Jack has two jobs, his annual income from the first job being $37,600 and that of the second job being $9,400.
The ratio of the income from the second job to the income from the first job is 9400/37600 = 1/4
The required ratio is 1/4
