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 start color blueD, 4, end color blueD monkeys and start color goldD, 5, end color goldD bananas.
Here are a few different ways we can describe the ratio of monkeys to bananas:
  1. There are start color blueD, 4, end color blueD monkeys for every start color goldD, 5, end color goldD bananas.
  2. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is start color blueD, 4, end color blueD to start color goldD, 5, end color goldD.
  3. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is start fraction, start color blueD, 4, end color blueD, divided by, start color goldD, 5, end color goldD, end fraction.
  4. The ratio of monkeys to bananas is start color blueD, 4, end color blueD, colon, start color goldD, 5, end color goldD.
Order matters in ratios. Here are a few different ways to describe the ratio of bananas to monkeys:
  1. There are start color goldD, 5, end color goldD bananas for every start color blueD, 4, end color blueD monkeys .
  2. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is start color goldD, 5, end color goldD to start color blueD, 4, end color blueD.
  3. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is start fraction, start color goldD, 5, end color goldD, divided by, start color blueD, 4, end color blueD, end fraction.
  4. The ratio of bananas to monkeys is start color goldD, 5, end color goldD, colon, start color blueD, 4, end color blueD.

Challenge problem
The following diagram shows that 3 rabbits come to Diane's yard when she puts 6 carrots out:
How many rabbits will come to Diane's yard when she puts 12 carrots out?
Assume the ratio of rabbits to carrots stays the same.
  • आपका उत्तर होना चाहिए
  • 6 की तरह एक पूर्णांक,
  • एक * 3, slash, 5 की तरह सरलीकृत उचित * अंश
  • एक * 7, slash, 4 की तरह सरलीकृत अनुचित * अंश
  • 1, space, 3, slash, 4 की तरह एक मिश्रित संख्या
  • एक * सटीक * दशमलव, जैसे कि 0.75
  • पाई का गुणज, जैसे 12, space, p, i अथवा 2, slash, 3, space, p, i
rabbits

Diane is doubling the number of carrots she is putting out left parenthesisfrom 6 to 12, right parenthesis.
If the ratio stays the same, then the number of rabbits will also double left parenthesisfrom 3 to 6, right parenthesis.

The answer

6 rabbits will come to Diane's yard.
