4-1 Ratios & Proportions


4 1 ratios proportions

Notes

A ratio is a comparison of two quantities.

Ratios can be written in several ways.

7 to 5, 7:5, and name the same ratio.

4 1 ratios proportions

When simplifying ratios based on measurements, write the quantities with the same units, if possible.

The ratio is , 3:4, or 3 to 4.

Example 3: Writing Ratios Based on Measurement

Write the ratio 3 yards to 12 feet in simplest form.

First convert yards to feet.

3 yards = 3 ● 3 feet

There are 3 feet in each yard.

Multiply.

= 9 feet

Now write the ratio.

9 feet

12 feet

Simplify.

Check It Out! Example 3

Write the ratio 36 inches to 4 feet in simplest form.

First convert feet to inches.

4 feet = 4 ● 12 inches

There are 12 inches in each foot.

= 48 inches

Multiply.

Now write the ratio.

36 inches

48 inches

Simplify.

Notes

Ratios that make the same comparison are equivalent ratios.

To check whether two ratios are equivalent, you can write both in simplest form.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

  • A proportion is an equation stating that two ratios are equal.

To prove that two ratios form a proportion, you must prove that they are equivalent. To do this, you must demonstrate that the relationship between numerators is the same as the relationship between denominators.


Examples do the ratios form a proportion

Examples: Do the ratios form a proportion?

x 3

Yes, these two ratios DO form a proportion, because the same relationship exists in both the numerators and denominators.

2

No, these ratios do NOT form a proportion, because the ratios are not equal.

Cross products

Cross Products

  • When you have a proportion (two equal ratios), then you have equivalent cross products.

  • Find the cross product by multiplying the denominator of each ratio by the numerator of the other ratio.


Example do the ratios form a proportion check using cross products

Example: Do the ratios form a proportion? Check using cross products.

,

12

9

These two ratios DO form a proportion because their cross products are the same.

12 x 3 = 36

9 x 4 = 36


Example 2

,

8

3

No, these two ratios DO NOT form a proportion, because their cross products are different.

8 x 2 = 16

3 x 5 = 15


Solving a proportion using cross products

Solving a Proportion Using Cross Products

  • Use the cross products to create an equation.

  • Solve the equation for the variable using the inverse operation.


Example 1 solve the proportion

Example 1: Solve the Proportion

Start with the variable.

20

k

=

17

68

Simplify.

Now we have an equation. To get the k by itself, divide both sides by 68.

68k

17(20)

=

68k

=

Start with the variable.

Simplify.

Now we have an equation. Solve for x.
