**How To Figure Out Ratios With Fractions** – Here we learn about ratios to fractions, including using ratios to find fractions and using fractions to find ratios.

Worksheets based on Edexcel, AQA and OCR exam questions, plus further guidance on where to go next if you’re still stuck.

## How To Figure Out Ratios With Fractions

A ratio to a fraction is a way of writing a ratio differently. A ratio compares how much one thing is compared to another. It can be written using the word “:” or “to” or as a decimal.

#### Fractions, Ratios, And Percent

When two values are parts of a whole we have the ratio a:b, we can say the ratio frac and frac to convert the ratios into fractions.

The chart below has a bar pattern showing a blue:red ratio of 3:2 (3 to 2). There are 3 blue blocks and 2 red blocks, so there are 5 blocks in total.

Here, the total number of shares in the ratio is equal to a+b (the denominator of each fraction), and the numerator is the part of the ratio we are interested in.

Note: If the fraction (or ratio) can be simplified, simplify it, but do not forget to use whole numbers (whole numbers).

Ratio to Fraction is part of our series of lessons to support ratio revision. It may be helpful to start with a basic ratio lesson to get a brief idea of what to expect, or use the step-by-step guides below for more detailed information on individual elements. Other lessons in this series:

### Everything You Need To Know About Ratio Tables

Before we can calculate this value, we need to know the sum of the two fractions we have. A common denominator also helps to tell the sum of the parts in a ratio

This ratio asks us Basic : Premium : Family. The three fractions we use are frac, frac and frac. Since fractions have the same denominator, we can use the numerators to write the ratio.

For example, the ratio 2:3 is expressed as a fraction frac rather than frac. This is a misunderstanding of the sum of the parts ratio. Be careful what you ask for as the denominator can be a part or a whole.

Make sure all the units in the ratio are the same. For example, in Example 6, all units in the ratio are in milliliters. We have not mixed the ratio of ml and L.

The numerator is out of proportion. For example, the number of mirrors in the kitchen is written in the ratio of 4:3. Write the proportion of cups in the kitchen. The correct answer is frac. The value of “mugs” is the first number in the ratio, m:g = 4:3, because we use the same order as the written sentence.

The parts of the ratio are written in the wrong order. For example, the ratio of dogs to cats is given as 12:13, but the solution is written as 13:12.
