1/1 Fraction Form
1:n/m:1 Unit Ratio Please do not copy! Equivalent Ratios Ratios with the same meaning Simplify
2:4 1:2 1/2 2/4 Prime Factorization Unit Ratio Ratios with a denominator to 1
(Simplify) A:B/A 1:B/A 1:n
A:B/B 1:B/A m:1 Conversion of A and B Comparing Ratios Change order to unit ratio e.g.
Which class has the highest BOYS:GIRLS ratio?
Class 1 Class 2 Class 3
2:3 3:4 1:5 1. Compare your question to ratio given If same order, m:1
e.g. Highest B:G If not, 1:n
e.g. Lowest G:B 2. Convert

3. Order Use m:1 Class 1 Class 2 Class 3
2/3:1= 0.6: 1 3/4:1=0.75:1 1/5:1=0.2:1 Class 2 Class 1 Class 3 4. Choose your answer Highest B:G Ratio Multiply Method 1: Find the Unknown
e.g. Solve for Unknown
Method 2: Fractions
7.5=c Find A:B:C from A:B/B:C Cross Product
B:C=7:5 4 : 3
7 : 5
28:21:15 Multiply as follow Line up common value Rearrange and simplify as needed Modeling Using Ratios e.g. 250 ml lemon juice, how
much water:lemonade? Water=5/6
Juice=1/6 250x5/6
250x1/6 yield 6
208:42 Ratios with Total e.g. Jim:Steve
4:3=7 Total:420 420/7x3=S
