We have also created a pie chart for you to put 10:15 ratio in perspective. To do so, we divided a pie into 25 pieces and then colored 10 pieces green and 15 pieces blue. The pie will look exactly the same using any equivalent ratio of 10:15.
The green part of the pie covers 40% and the blue part covers 60%. To calculate the percentages, we divided each side of the ratio by its total and then multiplied by 100, like this:
(10 / 25)×100 = 40
(15 / 25)×100 = 60
In fractional terms, 10/15 of the pie above is colored in green. This means that the ratio of 10 to 15 or 10:15 can also be expressed as a fraction, where the 10 to the left of the colon is the numerator and the 15 to the right of the colon is the denominator:
