Try writing out each pair in the same units and then simplify

e.g. 75cm : 2m
= 75cm : 200cm
Find something which divides into both...

For the simplest form don't forget to keep dividing by something that goes into both until you can't go any further! So with the first one if you divide each side by 5, you can still divide further....
