So we are trying to find the ratios between protein and fat, and choose the two items have the highest value.
Remember that ratio is just another way of saying proportion…or division.
The protein to fat ratio is just the amount of protein divided by fat.
We can easily find this for all of the food items.
The blueberry scone has 7 grams of protein and 22 grams of fat…
so 7 over 22 is our protein to fat ratio for those awesome blueberry scones.
The croissant is 5 over 18... chocolate chunk is 4 over 17...
and chocolate croissant is 5 over 17.
We probably can’t tell just by looking at these fractions which two of the four have the greatest ratios…
…but we can convert them into decimals so it’s easier to tell.
So and we're converting...converting...
Ah, there we go. Clearly, the blueberry scone and chocolate croissant have the greatest
protein to fat ratio, with .318 and .294 respectively.
Our answer's (D).
