example:

a journeyman welder can weld 120 lengths of pipe per 40-hour week while his apprentice can weld one pipe every half hour. what is the ratio of the journeyman's rate of work to the apprentice's rate of work?

another example:

on a shop drawing, the length of a pipe is 2 3/4''. the actual length of the pipe is 12'-6''long what is the ratio of the blue print length to the actual length?
