In 1997, there were 3043 county governments in the U.S. Of these,
3 were in Deleware. What was the
ratio of county governments in
Deleware to total county governments?
Do I write this:
3043/3 or 3/ 3043
just in case you still need this, its:
think of the words. which ever word (or phrase) comes first, that is where the number should go.
How can 72:36 = 3:2?
