Trenton had 15 biographies,15 science fiction books 7 reference book and 11 mystery books on his shelves find the ratio of biographies to the Total number of books

**Answer**

This is simple what you need to do first is add up all of the books.

So 48 because 15+15=30+11=41+7 is 48.

So your ratio would be 15:48 because there are 15 biographies.

Try to simplify it by the common number between the two which is three.

That would make your ratio 5/16.

Hope I helped!
