# Word Based Proportions Worksheets

What Are Word Based Proportions? The proportions written in the form of word problems are known as word-based proportions. Now ratios and proportions itself can be a bit difficult topic to grasp, learn, and excel at first. Students often find this topic a bit difficult to learn during their first few attempts. But as they say, practice makes a man perfect. Math involves practice and a lot of it. Through practice, students can master even the most difficult of the mathematical topics. Proportions expressed in the form of word problems or word-based proportions can be written in such a way that the whole sum represents the proportion of something out of a population. For example, in a class of 40 students, calculate the proportion of those students having a height of more than 6 feet. It is an example of word-based problems. The proportion can be calculated by dividing the number of students having heights of more than 6 feet by the entire class population.
