7 bananas.
14 strawberries.

Total is 21 fruits.

The ratio of strawberries to the TOTAL number of fruits is being asked for (not the ratio of strawberries to bananas).

That's 14:21, or 2:3 in simplified form.

ASIDE: If a Numeric Entry question asks you to enter a FRACTION, you are not obligated to simplify the fraction.
So, other acceptable answers include: 14/21, 140/210, 28/42, etc

How extensive is this rule? What if I entered 1/1.5? Would this be correct? I wouldn't do this here, but maybe in a problem where I end up with an answer like this and want to save time it could make sense.

Great question!
The numerator and denominator must be integers.
So, 1/1.5 wouldn't work
That said, if you take 1/1.5 and multiply numerator and denominator by 2, you get the equivalent fraction 2/3

Cheers,
Brent
