ratio of students selected on the team / the number of students trying out... boys : on the team -- 16 trying out -- 40 ratio is : 16/40 which reduces to 2/5 girls : on the team -- 12 trying out -- 30 ratio is : 12/30 which reduces to 2/5 so yes, the ratios are the same because in both boys and girls, the number of players selected was 2/5 of the total who tried out.

Calculation for Girls 30 ÷6= 5 12 ÷6 =2 ∴For Girls 2:5 Calculation for Boys 40 ÷ 4 = 10 16 ÷ 4 = 4 ∴ For Boys 4:10---- which = 2:5 If u divided both 4 and 10 by 2 ∴Both have the same ratio of 2:5
