Ratio

Objectives Understand how to use ratios to find specific quantities
Simplify ratios by identifying common factors Demonstrate a medium level of understanding of multiplication and division

A ratio can be written as 3:2 and is said to be 3 to 2.
A ratio is a comparison between two numbers or two quantities of different items. A ratio can be written as 3:2 and is said to be 3 to 2. If you have 2 biscuits and 1 cups of tea, the ratio of biscuits to cups of tea would be 2:1. Ratio is also a way in which quantities can be divided or shared.

Simplifying Ratios Like fractions, ratios can be simplified by finding common factors. The factors of a number are those numbers that divide into it exactly. E.g 1 × 12 = 12       2 × 6 = 12       3 × 4 = 12 So the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

Example There are 15 males and 12 females in a group. What is the ratio of males to females? Give your example in its simplest form. So the ratio of males to females is 15:12. However, both sides of the ratio can be divided by 3. Dividing 15 and 12 by 3 gives 5:4.       5:4 is the ratio in its simplest form.

Ratios and finding quantities
Adrian is building a barbecue and needs 300g of mortar. He needs to mix cement and sand in a ratio of 2:1. How much of each does he need?

How do you split 300g in the ratio 2:1?
Ask yourself 3 questions: How many parts are there? 3 (2 of cement, 1 of sand) How much is 1 share worth? 300g ÷ 3 = 100g How much of each is needed? 2 parts cement = 2 x 100g = 200g 1 part sand = 1 x 100g = 100g

The next job Adrian runs a job renovating a house. He employs painters, carpenters and brickies. They earn £600 for the day. Adrian decides to pay out his painters, carpenters and brickies in the ratio 1:2:3 (painters get 1, carpenters 2 and brickies 3) How do they split it?

How do you split £600 in the ratio 1:2:3?
Ask yourself 3 questions: How many shares are there? 6 (3 for Brickies, 2 for Carpenters and 1 for Painters) How much is 1 share worth? 600 ÷ 6 = £100 How much do they get? Brickies get 3 x 100 = £300 Carpenters get 2 x 100 = £200 Painters get 1 x 100 = £100
