Ratio

Ratio is used to compare two or more numbers. It also indicates how big or small a quantity is when compared to another. In simple words, “ratio is the comparison of two quantities that have the same units, and it indicates how much of one quantity is present in another quantity”.

 

Proportion

If two ratios are equal, they are said to be in proportion. Therefore, four different entities are required to describe a proportion. A proportion is written as A:B C:D. A and D are known as extreme terms and B and C are known as middle terms.

Q.1 There are 20 girls and 15 boys in a class.
(a) What is the ratio of number of girls to the number of boys?
(b) What is the ratio of number of girls to the total number of students in the class?

Ans-

(a) Ratio of number of girls to the number of boys
= 20: 15
= 4:3
(b) Total number of students = 20 + 15
= 35
Ratio of number of girls to the total number of
students = 20:35
= 4:7

Q.2 Out of 30 students in a class, 6 like football, 12 like cricket and remaining like tennis. Find the ratio of
(a) Number of students liking football to number of students liking tennis.
(b) Number of students liking cricket to total number of students.

Ans-

Total students in the class = 30
Number of students like football = 6
Number of students like cricket = 12
Number of students like tennis = 30 – (6 + 12)
= 12

(a) Ratio of the number of students liking football to number of students liking tennis = 6: 12
= 1:2
(b) Ratio of the number of students liking cricket to total number of students = 12: 30
= 2:5

Q.3 See the figure and find the ratio of
(a) Number of triangles to the number of circles inside the rectangle.
(b) Number of squares to all the figures inside the rectangle.
(c) Number of circles to all the figures inside the rectangle.

Ans-

(a) Number of triangles inside the rectangle = 3
Number of circles inside the rectangle = 2
Ratio of number of triangles to the number of
circles inside the rectangle = 3:2

(b) Number of squares inside the rectangle = 2
Number of all figures inside the rectangle = 7
Ratio of the number of squares to all the figures
inside the rectangle = 2:7

(c) Ratio of the number of circles to all the
figures inside the rectangle = 2:7

Q.4 Distances travelled by Hamid and Akhtar in an hour are 9 km and 12 km. Find the ratio of speed of Hamid to the speed of Akhtar.

Ans-

Distance covered by Hamid in one hour = 9 km
Speed of Hamid = 9 km/hr
Distance covered by Akhtar in one hour = 12 km
Speed of Hamid = 12 km/hr
Ratio of speed of Hamid to the speed of Akhtar
= 9:12
= 3:4

Q.5 Fill in the following blanks:1518=6=10=30 [Are these equivalent ratios?]

Ans-

15 18 = 3×5 3×6 = 5 6 5 6 = 5×2 6×2 = 10 12 5 6 = 5×5 6×5 = 25 30 15 18 = 5 6 = 10 12 = 25 30 Yes, all these ratios are equivalent ratios.

Q.18 Determine if the following are in proportion.
(a) 15, 45, 40, 120 (b) 33, 121, 9,96
(c) 24, 28, 36, 48 (d) 32, 48, 70, 210
(e) 4, 6, 8, 12 (f) 33, 44, 75, 100

Ans-

(a) Ratio of 15 and 45 = 15:45
= 1:3
Ratio of 40 and 120 = 40:120
= 1:3
Since, 15:45 = 40:120
Therefore, 15, 45, 40 and 120 are in proportion.

(b) Ratio of 33 and 121= 33:121
= 3:11
Ratio of 9 and 96 = 9:96
= 3:32
since, 33:121 ≠ 9:96
Therefore, 33, 121, 9 and 96 are not in proportion.
(c) Ratio of 24 and 28 = 24:28
= 6:7
Ratio of 36 and 48 = 36:48
= 3:4
since, 24:28 ≠ 36:48
Therefore, 24, 28, 36 and 48 are not in proportion.

(d) Ratio of 32 and 48 = 32:48
= 2:3
Ratio of 70 and 210 = 70:210
= 1:3
since, 32:48 ≠ 70:210
Therefore, 32, 48, 70 and 210 are not in proportion.
(e) Ratio of 4 and 6 = 4:6
= 2:3
Ratio of 8 and 12 = 8:12
= 2:3
since, 4:6 = 8:12
Therefore, 4, 6, 8 and 12 are in proportion.
(f) Ratio of 33 and 44 = 33:44
= 3:4
Ratio of 75 and 100 = 75:100
= 3:4
since, 33:44 = 75:100
Therefore, 33, 44, 75 and 100 are in proportion.
