Aside from expressing the ratio as a fraction, you can also do so using the word "to" or with a colon, as such:

• Ratio of carnations to daisies is 14/19              (using fraction)
• Ratio of carnations to daisies is 14 to 19          (using the word 'to')
• Ratio of carnations to daisies is 14:19              (using a colon)

Number of Carnations = 14
Number of Daisies = 19

Ratio1 = (Number of Carnations)/(Number of Daisies) = 14/19

Ratio2 = 14*2/19*2 = 28/38                                        [Multiply 14/19 by 2/2=1]

Ratio3 = 14*3/19*3 = ?/?                                            [Multiply 14/19 by 3/3=1]
