The ratio of folding for the two teachers is 2:3 Ms. Johnson = 2 Ms. Siple = 3 The sum of the ratio is 2+ 3 =5 Total cards folded = 300 The number of report card folded by Ms Johnson = 2/5 * 300 = 120 The number of report card folded by Ms Siple = 3/5 * 300 = 180 This means that Ms Johnson folded 120 report cards and Ms Siple folded 180 report cards.
