To do:

We have to fill in the given blanks.

Solution:

 By simplifying $\frac{15}{18}$

We get,

$=\frac{3\times5}{3\times6}$

$=\frac{5}{6}$

Now, by multiplying the numerator and denominator of $\frac{5}{6}$ by 2

we get,

$=\frac{5\times2}{6\times2}$

$=\frac{10}{12}$

Further, by multiplying the numerator and denominator of $\frac{5}{6}$ by 5

we get,

$=\frac{5\times5}{6\times5}$

$=\frac{25}{30}$

Therefore,

The blanks can be filled by 5, 12and 25 respectively.

Hence the given ratios are equivalent.
