If there are eight tennis balls and
five tennis rackets, which of the following statements is true? Is it A the ratio of tennis balls
to tennis rackets is eight to five? Is it B the ratio of tennis balls
to tennis racket is five to 13? Is it C the ratio of tennis balls
to tennis rackets is five to eight? Option D for every eight tennis
rackets, there are five tennis balls. Or option E for every five tennis
balls, there are eight tennis rackets.

As there are eight tennis balls and
five tennis rackets, we can immediately rule out option D and E, as both of these
options mentioned eight tennis rackets and five tennis balls. Options A, B, and C contain a ratio
eight to five, five to 13, and five to eight. All three of these ratios want
tennis balls to tennis rackets.

As there are eight tennis balls,
the first number in the ratio must be eight. There are five tennis rackets,
which means the second number in the ratio must be five. This means the correct ratio is
eight to five. The correct statement was option A
the ratio of tennis balls to tennis rackets is eight to five.
