Ratio at a glance


A ratio compares how much there is of one thing in relation to another. For example if the ratio of the number of dogs to the number of cats is 2:3 then for every 2 dogs there are 3 cats. 


Ratios can often be simplified by dividing each part by a common factor. Writing ratios in their simplest form makes it easier to visualise the relationship between the quantities in the ratios. It also makes it easier to use ratios in other contexts.


Ratio word problems may ask us to write a ratio, simplify a ratio, divide a quantity into a ratio or use a ratio to find quantities. We can use a bar model to represent a given ratio and this can help us visualise the ratio problem more easily.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a speed distance time worksheet or a direct proportion worksheet.


For more teaching and learning support on Ratio and Proportion our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
