Thanks skipjack everything makes sense to me now, you made everything so clear.
Can you just tell me why, when you evaluated, you doubled the numerator and denominator? Are you not able to work with 16.5/44=0.375=375/1000=15/40 ?

Thanks again for every one help.

Either way works. 15/40 = 3/8.
Thanks from SMARTYPANTS
