    Answer:

    Neha and Daniel do not use the same ratio of bananas to oranges

    Neha used the grater ratio of bananas to oranges

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Ratios

    The ratio is expressed as a:b, where a and b are whole numbers.

    Neha used 4 bananas and 5 oranges in her fruit salad. Daniel used 7 bananas and 9 oranges in his.

    We use cross multiplication to find if the ratios of bananas to oranges are the same.

    Neha s ratio is 4:5

    Daniel s ratio is 7:9

    To compare both ratios we use the expression:

    \displaystyle \frac{4}{5} =?\frac{7}{9}

    The question mark means equality could be true or false.

    The cross multiplication consists of multiplying the denominator of one side by the numerator of the other side:

    4*9 =? 5*7

    Operating:

    36 =? 35

    The equality is false, thus

    Neha and Daniel do not use the same ratio of bananas to oranges

    Since the left side of the equality is greater than the second:

    Neha used the grater ratio of bananas to oranges
