Solution

Given: 3 years 4 months, 5 years 8 months

3 years = 3 × 12 = 36 months

∴ 3 years 4 months = 40 months

5 years = 5 × 12 = 60

∴ 5 years 8 months = 68 months

∴ Reduced form of the ratio of 40 months and 68 months is:

`40/68 = (4 xx 10)/(4 xx 17)`  ....(Break the expression in order to simplift it further)

`= 10/17`.
