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 4\blueD4 monkeys and 5\goldD5 bananas.
Here are a few different ways we can describe the ratio of monkeys to bananas:
  1. There are 4\blueD4 monkeys for every 5\goldD5 bananas.
  2. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is 4\blueD4 to 5\goldD5.
  3. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is 4:5\blueD4 : \goldD5.
Order matters in ratios. Here are a few different ways to describe the ratio of bananas to monkeys:
  1. There are 5\goldD5 bananas for every 4\blueD4 monkeys .
  2. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is 5\goldD5 to 4\blueD4.
  3. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is 5:4\goldD5 : \blueD4.

Let's practice!
