User: The Ratio of the number of bananas to the number of apples at a fruit stand is 3:5. Moe says that the ratio is equivalent to 12:25. Why moe's statement is incorrect

Weegy: 3:5 is equivalent to 3/5 = 0.6, 12:25 is equivalent to 12/25 = 0.48. So they are not the same ratios. The ratio is, however, equivalent to 12:20 (multiplying 3 and 5 each by 4). Expert answered|debnjerry|Points 27295|
