Answer

$\frac{33}{80}$

Work Step by Step

We can write the given ratio as a fraction and then simplify in lowest terms. $\frac{4\frac{1}{8}inches}{10inches}$ Since both the denominator and numerator have the same unit, we can divide out the common unit. $\frac{4\frac{1}{8}}{10}=\frac{\frac{33}{8}}{10}=\frac{33}{8}\times\frac{1}{10}=\frac{33}{80}$
