60So, our question becomes:

15 is what fraction of 60?NOTE: For numeric entry questions involving fractions, ALL EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS are considered correct.

So, we could just enter 15/60 as our answer

[since 15 = 15/60 of 60]Or, if we could simplify 15/60 to get 1/4, which would also be correct.

Etc

Answers: 1/4, 15/60, 100/400, 2/8, . . . etc

[all would be considered correct]Cheers,
