Question

What is the antecedent term in the simplest form of the ratio 15:25 ?


Your Answer
A
15
Your Answer
B
5
Correct Answer
C
3
Your Answer
D
25

Solution

The correct option is C 3

In the simplest form, the numerator and denominator have no common factors other than 1.
We know, 15 = 3× 5 and
                 25 = 5× 5

We can write 15 : 25 as 1525
1525 = (3× 5)(5× 5)
35=3:5

We know, for a ratio a : b, a is called the antecedent and b is called the consequent.
In this case, 3 is the antecedent term.
