Alara Mccarthy

Given
We are given two ratios $\frac{9}{4}$ and $\frac{2}{3}$, we need to determine whether they form a proportion or not.
Solution
Two ratios will form a proportion when they are equal in their simplified fractions.
Since $\frac{9}{4}$ has no factor common in numerator and denominator, so it is in simplified form. Also $\frac{2}{3}$ is in simplified form. But $\frac{9}{4}$ is not equal to $\frac{2}{3}$, so they do not form a proportion.
Therefore, the correct answer is No.
