If 80% of the applications to a program were rejected, what is the ratio of the number accepted to the number rejected?

A) 1/6

B) 1/5

C) 1/4

D) 4/5

Percentage of the applicant to a program were rejected = 80%

Percentage of the applicant to a program were accepted would be =100%-80%

                                                                                                                       =20%

So, The ratio of number accepted to number rejected is given by = 20 : 80

                                                                                                                   = 1 : 4

Hence, the ratio of number accepted to number rejected is 1/4.
