## FAQs on How to Simplify Ratios? Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. How do you simplify ratios?
Ans. To simplify ratios, divide both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common divisor (GCD). This will reduce the ratio to its simplest form.
 2. Can you give an example of simplifying ratios?
Ans. Sure! Let's simplify the ratio 8:12. The GCD of 8 and 12 is 4. By dividing both the numerator and denominator by 4, we get the simplified ratio 2:3.
 3. Is it necessary to simplify ratios?
Ans. Simplifying ratios is not always necessary, but it is often preferred as it provides a clearer representation of the relationship between the quantities being compared. Simplified ratios are easier to work with and compare.
 4. How can simplifying ratios help in problem-solving?
Ans. Simplifying ratios can make it easier to solve problems involving proportions and comparisons. By simplifying, we can easily identify the relationship between the two quantities and perform calculations more efficiently.
 5. What if the numerator and denominator have a common factor other than 1? Can the ratio be simplified further?
Ans. No, if the numerator and denominator have a common factor other than 1 after simplification, then the ratio is already in its simplest form. Further simplification would result in a different ratio.
