Alison runs a mile in 5 minutes and 50 seconds. Elizabeth runs a mile in 6 minutes and 40 seconds. What is the ratio of Alison’s time to Elizabeth’s time?

a) 7:8

b) 5.5:6.4

c) 55:64

d) 8:7

Answer:a) 7:8

Step-by-step explanation:Alison: 5 minutes and 50 seconds = 355 seconds

Elizabeth: 6 minutes and 40 seconds = 400 seconds

355:400, reduces to 71:80 or 7:8

Answer:7:8

Step-by-step explanation:First, convert their times to common units. You’ll want to put it in seconds:

5 minutes and 50 seconds = 350 seconds

– multiply 5 minutes by 60 to get it into seconds and then add the other 50 seconds to it

– for Elizabeth’s time, multiply 6 by 60 seconds and add 40 to it

To get the ratio of their times, divide Alison’s time by Elizabeth’s time:

350 ÷ 400 = 7:8
