Ratio?Ratio is a way of comparing two or more quantitiesExamples:

Number of Red Smarties in a box compared to Blue

Number of girls in a class compared to boysFor exampleRED & BLUE Smarties6 BLUE3 REDThe Ratio of BLUE to RED Smarties is 6 to 3Blue : Red6 : 32 : 1The Ratio of BLUE to RED Smarties is 6. OrRED & BLUE Smarties6 BLUE3 REDThe Ratio of RED to BLUE Smarties is 3 to 6Red : Blue3 : 61 : 2The Ratio of RED to BLUE Smarties is 1:2For every RED Smartie, there are 2 BLUESSimplifying RatiosIn the Smarties example, we changed 6:3 to 2:1

This is called Simplifying a ratio

We did it by dividing each number by 3

3 was the largest common factorTry to simplify these8:218:34:85:255:24:16:11:21:55:2 !!Sharing an amount in a given ratioBart and Maggie share a bag of 16 life savers in the ratio 3:1This means for every 3 life savers Bart gets, Maggie gets 1

How many students are there for one computer?

Equivalent ratios make the same comparison.What is an Equivalent Ratio?1.There are 300 computers for 1200 students Express the ratio as a fraction:

2.There is 1 computer for every 4 students ORBring the fraction to lowest terms:
