Exercises $15-20$ refer to a triangle. Express the ratio of the height to the base in simplest form. $$ \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text { height } & {1 \mathrm{m}} \\ \hline \text { base } & {0.6\mathrm{m}} \\ \hline\end{array} $$

okay. And this question, they give us a triangle. Okay, Who has a height? This is the height, and this is the beast. And they tells in the question that the high the high is one meter on the base is 10.6 meters, and it says express the ratio of the height to the base in simplest form. So it wants one divided by 10.6, but it wants it and simplest form. Now, there's a couple ways you can do this. You could simply put this in your calculator. If you're using one right, you do one divided by 10.6. But it may give you a mixed number that sometimes happens, and you'll have to change it into an improper fraction. Okay, Or what you could do is just remember, if you move the decimal one to the right on the bottom, you move it one to the right on the top. So now you get 10 over six, or if you divide by two on the top and bottom because it did say, in simplest form, you get five over straight
