Ratios

This is my math goal from last week I’ve been focusing on, which is ratios and the concepts that wraps around it. And these are my progress and how much I understand what a ratio is/means:







What are ratios?

Ratios are proportions that compares different values to each other, and shows the relationships of different amounts and numbers; these are examples of them:

As you can see there are 2 numbers at the side and : in the middle, it is to compare the first value to the second value. For example: There is 1 cow and 5 chickens in the farm. Compare the amounts of cow to the amounts of the chickens. The answer would be 1 to 5. Because there is 1 cow and there are % chickens, so comparing the values of them would be 1 to 5. But in the ratio form it would be 1:5.

 

 

Why do we need them in real life??

We can normally see a lot of ratios in our life, but it’s just so unnoticeable and small. These are all the examples of ratios represented in real life:

8E516585-1F46-4803-8F65-B086D86B3A4B

They can be a big deal in buying foods from the grocery store. For example; There are 2 different brand of milk. The first one is 2L for 1$ and the second one is 1L for 2$. USing ratio we can tell that the first one is better and have a better deal.
