The given ratio is 14/15:7:10.

The given ratio is ordered triple number or in simple language 3 numbers (terms) in an order.

A ratio does not change in value by multiplying (or dividing) each its terms by equal number (but never by zero).

A ratio is in simplest form when all the terms are in the minimum posinble intgers.

In the given ratio 14/25 can be 14 in the ratio if we multiply each of the 3 terms by 14:

(14/25)*25 : 7*25 : 10*25

14 : 175 : 250

Now the three terms i 14 : 175 : 25 together do not have any common (in fact HCF) factor other than 1.

Therefore, 14 : 175 : 250 is the simple form of the given ratio.
