Answer:7:20

Step-by-step explanation:14+26=40

40 equals the total amount of teachers. Since we want to do the ratio of math teachers to the total of all teachers, we had to find 40.

You get 14:20 though if you want to simplify, find to common denominator (2) and dived both sides by it.

14/2 = 7

40/2 = 20

= 7:20

Answer:SEE EXPLANATION

Step-by-step explanation:Add all amount of teachers together

14+26 = 40

14:40

Simplified: 7/20 or 7:20

Ratios are just like fractions and can usually be put in this format
