# Ratio review

CCSS Math: 6.RP.A.1
Learn how to find the ratio between two things given a diagram.
A ratio compares two different quantities.
For example, those two quantities could be monkeys and bananas:
Notice that there are $\blueD4$ monkeys and $\goldD5$ bananas.
Here are a few different ways we can describe the ratio of monkeys to bananas:
1. There are $\blueD4$ monkeys for every $\goldD5$ bananas.
2. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is $\blueD4$ to $\goldD5$.
3. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is $\blueD4 : \goldD5$.
Order matters in ratios. Here are a few different ways to describe the ratio of bananas to monkeys:
1. There are $\goldD5$ bananas for every $\blueD4$ monkeys .
2. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is $\goldD5$ to $\blueD4$.
3. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is $\goldD5 : \blueD4$.
