Ratio Tables Worksheets
What Are Ratio Tables? Ratios are when two quantities with the same unit are compared and these are denoted using colons. When solving ratio problems, students can use the ratio tables. However, not many students know what ratio tables are and how can they help them solve ratio problems. Therefore, we are going to start by understanding what ratio tables are and what are their applications. Ratio tables are structured lists of equivalent ratios. These lists help in understanding the relationship between ratios and the numbers. To solve ratio problems using tables, you can approach the problem in variety of different ways. First is simple addition. The second method is through multiplication. Both these methods include the trial and error approach.
When one of the four numbers in a proportion is unknown, cross products may be used to find the unknown number. This is called solving the proportion. An "x" is frequently used in place of the unknown.
