The ratio of rachel's black shoes to red shoes would be 3:1.
3 would represent her black shoes and 1 would represent her red shoes.
In order to get the answer, you simply turn 6/2 into its lowest form.
This will become 3/1 or 3:1.
For the second question, we will look at the ratio of heads to tails in the experiment.
First, we divide 42 and 28.
This will result in 1/2.
This simply means that the heads appeared 50% of the time throughout the 42 times that Eric flipped the coin.
