Answer:It could

possiblybe:2:15.Step-by-step explanation:#1.Convert the whole number 5 to a fraction with 1 in the denominator.We then have:

2/3 : 5 = 2/3 : 5/1#2.Convert fractions to integers by eliminating the denominators.Least Common Denominator (2/3, 5/1) = 3

We now have:

2/3 : 5 = 2/3 : 15/3#3.Our two fractions now have like denominators so we can multiply both by 3 to eliminate the denominators.We then have:

2/3 : 5 = 2 : 15#4. Try to reduce the ratio further with the greatest common factor (GCF).The GCF of 2 and 15 is 1

#5.Divide both terms by the GCF, 1:2 ÷ 1 = 2

15 ÷ 1 = 15

The ratio 2 : 15 cannot be reduced further by dividing both terms by the GCF = 1 :

Therefore:

2/3 : 5 = 2 : 15Hopefully this makes sense!

Have a great day! ^^
