Question

# Which of the following ratios is not equal to $$8 : 3$$ in its simplest form ?

A
16:6
B
104:36
C
56:21
D
896:336

Solution

## The correct option is B $$104 : 36$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$\dfrac{16}{6}=\dfrac{16\div 2}{6\div 2}=\dfrac{8}{3}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$\dfrac{104}{36}=\dfrac{104\div 4}{36\div 4}=\dfrac{26}{9}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$\dfrac{56}{21}=\dfrac{56\div 7}{21\div 7}=\dfrac{8}{3}$$$$\Rightarrow$$  $$\dfrac{896}{336}=\dfrac{896\div 112}{336\div 112}=\dfrac{8}{3}$$$$\therefore$$   Here, we can see $$8:3$$ is not equal to $$104:36$$.$$\therefore$$   Correct answer is option B.Mathematics
