Question:

If a class consists of 15 men and 12 women, what is the ratio of women to the class?

A 12:27
Explaination

This question is asking the relationship between the number of women and the total number of people in the class (not just men). We find the total number of people by adding men and women together, which equals 27. The number of women in the class is 12, so the ratio is 12:27.
