It is: 32 to 39

This depends on the context. However, it is good practice to reduce a ratio or a fraction to its lowest possible term. The only time you wouldn't simplify a ratio or fraction is if it signified something in its original state.

You should always check 2 things first. Make sure that the first number in the ratio is the numerator, and the second is the denominator. A 5:8 ratio should never end up being 8/5. Also, it's very helpful to simplify, if not already done in the ratio. Same applies to writing a fraction as a ratio.
