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
