Example
Write these in the form
(a) 1:n and (b) n:1
4:5 3:7

2:5 5:12

The shaded area is 1 and a half times the size of the unshaded.
The unshaded area is two thirds the size of the shaded area.
The unshaded area is three fifths the size of the shaded area.
Write down what both forms mean.
Main Activity
Draw the bar model showing the ratio 4:7.
Explain using diagrams and calculations how this can be written in the form 1:n and n:1.

Write these ratios in the form 1:n and n:1. Write a sentence explaining what each form means.
(a) 2:9 (b) 4:7 (c) 10:3

Find as many ratios that can be written in these forms as possible. Try to find at least 3 for each.

(a) 1:3 (b) 1:1 (=1: ) (c) 2 :1 (= :1)

4:7 = 1: (=1:1 OR 1:1.75) = :1

10:3 = 1: (OR 1:0.3) = :1 (=3 :1)
