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!
