User: there are sixteen male students and twelve female students. Which ratio can be used to express female students to male students in simplest form? Explain your solution

Weegy: The ratio of female to male students is 12:16. In simplest for it is 3:4.

User: how did you get your answer

Weegy: Just like reducing fractions. Whatever you do to the first number you must do to the second, so you need to find out what each can be divided by evenly. 12/4 = 3 and 16/4 = 4. Therefore you can reduce 12:16 to 3:4.

User: thanks

Weegy: You're welcome. Thanks for using Weegy!
