Here you’ll be given two ratios and three different types of quantities: a, b, and c. You’ll then be asked to figure out the ratio of a to c.

In order to solve, you need to figure out the least common multiple of the two b’s and multiply the respective a’s accordingly.

A ratio tells you the proportional quantity of one thing relative to another.

Make sure not to get ratios confused with fractions.

You could use mental math or set up two fractions to get 30 cats as your answer.

These are a little bit more involved, but shouldn’t pose much of a threat to your score one you learn about how to go about solving them.

For example, a ratio does not tell you how many pears or oranges you actually have; a ratio does not tell you how many boys and how many girls there actually are; and, a ratio does not tell you how much money you have in the piggy bank or in the drawer. In order to determine how many pears or oranges you actually have, how many boys and how many girls there actually are and how much money you have in the piggy bank or in the drawer, you would have to perform ratio and proportion to answer these questions.

The different ways to express ratios are: When comparing ratios, they should be written as fractions. If they are not equal they are NOT considered a ratio.
