A fraction can be expressed as a ratio by following a few simple steps. The easiest way is to use the calculator above, which shows each step in the conversion.
Follow along to learn how to do it without a calculator.
Step One: Simply and Convert to an Improper Fraction
First, simplify the fraction if it is not already reduced. If the fraction is a mixed number, then convert it to an improper fraction.
The result should be a reduced numerator and denominator only, with no whole number.
Step Two: Rewrite as a Ratio
The second step is to rewrite the fraction as a ratio. A ratio is expressed as A:B, where A is the fraction numerator, and B is the fraction denominator.
For example, let’s convert 1 1 / 2 to a ratio.
Start by converting 1 1 / 2 to an improper fraction.
1 1 / 2 = 3 / 2
Then, rewrite 3 / 2 as a ratio.
