IDENTIFY EQUIVALENT RATIOS WORKSHEET WITH ANSWERS

1. Find the missing numbers. 2. Find the missing numbers. 3. Consider the statement: Ratio of width and length of a hall is 2 : 5. Complete the following table that shows some possible breadths and lengths of the hall.

 Width of the hall (in meters) 10 ? 40 Length of the hall (in meters) 25 50 ?  It is given that the three ratios are equal.

In order to get the first missing number, we consider the fact that 21 = 3  7. i.e. when we divide 21 by 7 we get 3. This indicates that to get the missing number of second ratio, 14 must also be divided by 7.

When we divide, we have, 14 ÷ 7 = 2

Hence, the second ratio is 2/3

Similarly, to get third ratio we multiply both terms of second ratio by 3.

Hence, the third ratio is 6/9

So, 14/21 = 2/3 = 6/9 [These are all equivalent ratios]. (i) In order to get the first missing number, we consider the denominators of first and second fraction.

When we divide 18 by 3, we will get 6, like wise if we divide numerator of first fraction by 3, we will get  5.

The second fraction is 5/6. So the  first missing number is 5.

(ii) Compare 5/6 and 10/?.

If we multiply the numerator 5 by 2 we will get 10

Like wise, if we multiply the denominator 6 by 2, we will get 12.

The third fraction is 10/12. So the second missing number is 12.

(iii) Compare 10/12 = ?/30.

We cannot say that the number 12 is to be multiplied by which number in order to get 30.

So, let us consider the missing number be x.

10/12 = x/30

Multiply each side by 30.

(10/12) ⋅ 30 = x

25 = x

The fourth fraction is 25/30. So the third missing number is 25.

 Width of the hall (in meters) 10 ? 40 Length of the hall (in meters) 25 50 ?

Let x and y be the two unknowns.

Width and lengths are in the ratio 2 : 5.

If two ratios are equivalent then

product of means = product of extremes

10 : 25 = x : 50 25x = 10(50)

25x = 500

Divide each side by 25.

x = 20

By comparing the first and third columns

product of means = product of extremes

10 : 25 = 40 : x

10x = 40(25)

10x = 1000

Divide each side by 10.

x = 100 Apart from the stuff given above, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
