3 is to 15 as 60 is to 300.

3 is to 15 as 60 is to 300

it’s an analogy. read it as “3 is to 15 as 60 is to…? “
3 x 5 = 15, so 60 x 5 = 300

3:15 thats 3 multiplyed by 5 sodo 60 times 5 also. 300

the semi colons mean its a ratio. so 3:15, 3×5=15. 60:?, 60×5=300. ?=300

its called an analogy
3 is to 15 as 60 is to 300
so 300 is your answer

the relationship between 3 and 15 you have to apply to 60 and what other number?

its like “worm is to bird as cheese is to mouse” analogies. or ratios. 3 is to 15(3 goes into 15 5 times) (60 times 5=300)

It’s a ratio. For example:
For a trailmix, there’s 3 marshmallows to 15 peanuts to 60 raisins. Etc.
In a reduced ratio, it’s 1:5:30

it means they are ratios
3 to 15 to 60
