John's ratio homework

Question #1 and #2

1. Janine wants to write the ratio of oranges to apples.How does she know whether to write 3:4 or 4:3?

4:3 because, the way the question went was oranges to apples
because there are 4 oranges and 3 apples!

2. Your friend missed the class that ratios were introduced
use an example and draw a diagram to explain the difference
between part to part ratio and part to whole ratio.


Part to Part-Comparing a part to another part of the group.

Part to Whole-Comparing a part and the total in the group.

Sorry I cant get the second part of Question 2!

Your scribepost very understandable John.

For question 2, all you have to do is make a diagram (picture) showing part to part/part to whole ratio.
