1 Be able to divide a quantity into a given ratio ObjectiveBe able to divide a quantity into a given ratio
2 Ratio: What does this mean? Ratio is used to compare the sizes of two (or more) quantities. For example: a drink is made by mixing two parts orange juice with five parts water. This relationship of 2 to 5 can be written as the ratio 2:5.So the ratio of iron to copper is 60:40.We could simplify this to give 3:2A steel alloy rod is made up of 60% iron and 40% copper.
3 Dividing a quantity in to a ratio Divide 560kg in the ratio 3:4Total parts1 partparts3 + 4 = 7560 7 = 8033 x 80 = 240kg44 x 80 = 320kgDivide 560kg in the ratio 3:4 is 240kg:320kg
4 Time to try some! £900 into the ratio 4:5 £400 : £500 2205kg into the ratio 8:13450 hours into the ratio 5:6:7550 lbs into the ratio 5:8:9£400 : £500£75 : £125£245 : £385840kg : 1365kg125h : 150h : 175h125lbs : 200lbs : 225lbs
