FIRST YOU FIND THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RIGHT-HANDED BY DOING   5:8 = 45:x  CROSS MULTIPLY : 5x = 45(8)                                    5x = 360                                       x = 360/5                                        x = 72 THE TOTAL NUMBER OF BATTERS = 45 + 72 =117 THE  RATIO OF LEFT-HANDED BATTERS TO THE TOTAL NUMBER OF BATTERS IS 45/117 ( YOU CAN SIMPLIFY BOTH BY 9 ); 45/117 = 5/13.         HOPE THIS HELPED
