## How To Simplify Ratios With Fractions

Simplifying ratios that involve fractions.

## A step-by-step guide to simplifying ratios with fractions

## Step 1: Convert mixed fractions to improper fractions

## Step 2: Convert both fractions using the lowest common denominator

By listing multiples of both 12 and 30, we find the lowest common denominator is 60.

12 x 5 = 60 and 17 x 5 = 85, giving us 85/60

30 x 2 = 60 and 7 x 2 = 14, giving us 14/60

## Step 3: Write the numerators as a ratio

Now we have a common denominator, we can omit this and write out our ratio using the numerators.

## Step 4: Simplify the ratio

The final step is to simplify the ratio by dividing both sides by the highest common factor.

In our example, the highest common factor is 1, so the ratio is already in its lowest form.

We can therefore say that 1 5/12:7/30 = 85:14.

## Example question 1

Simplify the ratio 12/17:15/68

Now multiply the numerator by the same amount to keep the value of the fraction:

This leaves us with 48/68:15/68.

We can omit the common denominator and write our ratio using both numerators:

## Example question 2

Place this over the original denominator, giving you the ratio 29/9:5/18.

Omit the denominators and write out the ratio using the numerators:

The highest common factor here is 1, so we cannot simply any further.

## What are Fractions?

## Special Fractions

A whole number can be expressed as itself over 1

Any number divided by 0 is undefined

## Reducing Fractions

So your final fraction is $1/5$.

## Adding or Subtracting Fractions

But you CANNOT add or subtract fractions if your denominators are unequal.

Now we can add them, as they have the same denominator.

We cannot reduce $54/55$ any further as the two numbers do not share a common factor.

So our final answer is $54/55$.

Answer choice A is eliminated, as 40 is not evenly divisible by 12.

120 is evenly divisible by 8, 12, and 15, so it is our least common denominator.

So our final answer is B , 120.

## Multiplying Fractions

To multiply a fraction, first multiply the numerators. This product becomes your new numerator.

Next, multiply your two denominators. This product becomes your new denominator.

$2/3 * 3/4 = (2 * 3)/(3 * 4) = 6/12$

$2/3 * 3/4$ => $1/1 * 1/2$ => $1/2$.

Both 3’s are multiples of 3, so we can replace them with 1 ($3/3 = 1$).

## Dividing Fractions

Now that we've seen how to solve a fraction problem the long way, let's talk short cuts.

## Decimal Points

Which, when converted back to their fraction form, is:

Our denominators are: 3, 4, 5, & 8.

120 is divisible by all four digits, so it is a common denominator.

$5/3$ => ${5(40)}/{3(40)}$ => $200/120$

$7/4$ => ${7(30)}/{4(30)}$ => $210/120$

$6/5$ => ${6(24)}/{5(24)}$ => $144/120$

$9/8$ => ${9(15)}/{8(15)}$ => $135/120$

$135/120, 144/120, 200/120, 210/120$

Which, when converted back into their original fractions, is:

So once again, our final answer is A .

## Percentages

To get a percentage, multiply your decimal point by 100.

So 0.3 can also be written as 30%, because $0.3 * 100 = 30$.

0.01 can be written as 1% because $0.01 * 100 = 1$, etc.

## Mixed Fractions

For example, $5{1/3}$ is a mixed fraction. We have a whole number, 5, and a fraction, $1/3$.

75 was able to go evenly into 225, leaving 50 out of 75 left over.

Because 50 and 75 share a common denominator of 25, we can reduce $3{50/75}$ to:

So our final answer is B , $3{2/3}$

## What are Ratios?

Ratios are used as a way to compare one thing to another (or multiple things to one another).

## Expressing Ratios

Ratios can be written in three different ways:

No matter which way you write them, these are all ratios comparing A to B.

## Different Types of Ratios

${\a \part}:{\a \different \part}$

## Reducing Ratios

Just as fractions can be reduced, so too can ratios.

So the cars have a ratio of $3:2$

## Increasing Ratios

So the ratio of $3:2$ can also be

So we must increase each side of the ratio by a matter of 2.5

Our new, increased ratio is 5:12.5, which means that the larger hypotenuse is 12.5.

Expand ratios, reduce them--go wild!

## Finding the Whole

For example, a ratio of $6:7$ can be:

And so on, just as we did above.

But this means we could also represent $6:7$ as:

Why? Because each side must change at the same rate. And in this case, our rate is $x$.

So if you were asked to find the total amount, you would add the pieces together.

So let’s take a look at another problem.

$4(1):3(1) = 7$ jewels in the box (7 jewelry pieces total)

$4(2):3(2) = 8:6$ jewels in the box (14 jewelry pieces total)

$4(3):3(3) = 12:9$ jewels in the box (21 jewelry pieces total)

The is the exact same process as finding the whole, but in reverse.

Together, our ratio components add up to $5x$. And there are 30 feet total. So:

Which means our shorter piece is 12 feet long.

## Rational and Irrational Numbers

All other numbers are considered irrational.

Why is 5 a rational number? Because it can be expressed as the fraction $5/1$.

Why is 0.6666667 a rational number? Because it can be expressed as the fraction $2/3$

(Hint: if the decimals continue on forever without repeating, the number is irrational)

This leaves us with answer choice E.

So our final fraction would look like:

## How to Solve Fraction, Ratio, and Rational Number Questions

1) Identify whether the problem involves fractions or ratios

A fraction will involve the comparison of a $\piece/\whole$.

You can tell when the problem is ratio specific as the question text will do one of three things:

2) If a ratio question asks you to change or identify values, first find the sum of your pieces

3) When in doubt try to use decimals

4) Remember your special fractions

## Test Your Knowledge

4) How many irrational numbers are there between 1 and 8?

$1/3$ => ${1(4)}/{3(4)}$ => $4/12$

$1/4$ => ${1(3)}/{4(3)}$ => $3/12$

Now that they have the same numerator, we can combine them to be:

Now we must divide both sides by $7/12$, which means that we must inverse and multiply.

Instead of using and converting fractions, we also could have used decimals instead.

Because they are decimals, we can simply add them together to be:

This leaves us with answer choice B:

So our final answer is, again, B.

A common multiple of 3 and 5 is 15, so let us make that their new denominator.

$1/5$ => ${1(3)}/{5(3)}$ => $3/15$

$1/3$ => ${1(5)}/{3(5)}$ => $5/15$

Well the rational number exactly halfway between $3/15$ and $5/15$ is $4/15$.

Again, if fractions aren't your favorite, you can always feel free to use decimals.

First, convert $1/5$ and $1/3$ into decimals.

Now, find the decimal halfway between them:

Now, let us find the answer choice that, when converted into a decimal, matches our answer.

Success! We nailed it at the mid value, no need to try the others.

Our final answer is, again, J.

Method 1--Ratio and Fraction Manipulation

$1/2$ => ${1(3)}/{2(3)}$ => $3/6$

$1/3$ => ${1(2)}/{3(2)}$ => $2/6$

Now, let us add them together and subtract their sum from 1.

So Seth ate $1/6$ of the sandwich.

So the sandwich eating fractions are:

When we just look at the numerators, the ratio is:

Our final answer is D , $3:2:1$.

So let us say that the sandwich is 12 feet long.

If Jerome ate half of it, then he ate:

If Kevin ate one third of it, then he ate:

If we add them together, they ate:

$6 + 4 = 10$ feet of sandwich.

$12 - 10 = 2$ feet of sandwich.

Now let us compare their shares of 6, 4, and 2.

Again, our final answer is D , $3:2:1$

Why is this true? Think of it this way:

The square root of 1 is rational, because it equals 1, which can be written as $1/1$.

So our final answer is E , more than 7 (and, in fact, infinite).

Hurray and huzzah, you did it!

Do you know that this could be converted to fractions and can be used in many ways?

In this article, you would be learning how ratios can be represented as fractions .

## Ratios as fractions meaning

Ratio as a fraction occurs when rations are written in the form of fractions.

The ratio X : Y is expressed as a fraction in the form X Y .

Express the following ratios as fractions .

## Ratios as fractions properties

Below are several properties of ratios as fractions and some direct examples of each property.

In the ratio 2:3, 2 is the antecedent while 3 is the consequent.

When 2:3 is converted to a fraction, it becomes 2 3 .

c. When a ratio is converted to a fraction, the fraction must be reduced to its simplified form.

d. Ratios as fractions have no unit because both the antecedent and consequent are of same units .

given the ratio of two distances is 5cm is to 7cm. By conversion it becomes,

5 c m : 7 c m = 5 c m 7 c m = 5 7

1 m = 100 c m 50 c m : 1 m = 50 c m : 100 c m = 50 c m 100 c m = 1 2

f. The antecedent and the consequent of a ratio should be expressed as whole numbers.

4 . 5 : 3 . 5 = 45 : 35 = 45 35 = 9 7

However, we may be asked to express the value of the first as a ratio of the total and hence we have

t o t a l = 2 + 1 + 3 = 6 f i r s t : t o t a l = 2 : 6 = 2 6 = 1 3

## Ratios as fractions in simplest form

There are several methods used to write ratios as fractions in the simplest form.

## Using the highest common factor (HCF)

Express the ratio as a fraction,

Find the HCF between the numerator and the denominator. The HCF between 18 and 24 is 6.

Divide the numerator and the denominator by the HCF,

## Using the lowest common factor (LCF)

Express the ratio as a fraction. Thus,

Divide by using the lowest common factor. The lowest common factor between 18 and 24 is 2, Thus;

## Ratios as fractions calculations

Till now, we have only dealt with ratios of parts, now we expand more on ratios out of a whole.

## Ratios out of a whole

Jill's share is 3. The total ratio is,

The fraction of the whole bread Jill take is,

J i l l ' s s h a r e : t o t a l s h a r e = 3 : 5 = 3 5

## Examples of ratios as fractions

We are told that the ratio of these kinds of movies is,

h o r r o r m o v i e s t o t a l m o v i e s = 2 12

Simplify, by dividing by the HCF which is 2,

One-fifth of Kohe's books are torn. What is the ratio of the books untorn to those torn?

Kohe's books comprise both those that are torn and untorn.

t o r n + u n t o r n = 1 1 5 + u n t o r n = 1 u n t o r n = 1 - 1 5 u n t o r n = 4 5

u n t o r n : t o r n = 4 5 : 1 5

( 4 5 × 5 ) : ( 1 5 × 5 ) = 4 : 1

Thus, the ratio of untorn to torn is 4:1.

We first find the total ratio,

Simplify by dividing through by 3,

f r a c t i o n n o t a m b e r = 9 ÷ 3 15 ÷ 3 f r a c t i o n n o t a m b e r = 3 5

## Ratios as Fractions - Key takeaways

## How to Solve Fraction Questions in Math

Last Updated: February 24, 2023 References Approved

## Doing Calculations with Fractions

- For example, if you need to add 1/2 and 2/3, start by determining a common multiple. In this case, the common multiple is 6 since both 2 and 3 can be converted to 6. To turn 1/2 into a fraction with a denominator of 6, multiply both the numerator and denominator by 3: 1 x 3 = 3 and 2 x 3 = 6, so the new fraction is 3/6. To turn 2/3 into a fraction with a denominator of 6, multiply both the numerator and denominator by 2: 2 x 2 = 4 and 3 x 2 = 6, so the new fraction is 4/6. Now, you can add the numerators: 3/6 + 4/6 = 7/6. Since this is an improper fraction, you can convert it to the mixed number 1 1/6.
- On the other hand, say you're working on the problem 7/10 - 1/5. The common multiple in this case is 10, since 1/5 can be converted into a fraction with a denominator of 10 by multiplying it by 2: 1 x 2 = 2 and 5 x 2 = 10, so the new fraction is 2/10. You don't need to convert the other fraction at all. Just subtract 2 from 7, which is 5. The answer is 5/10, which can also be reduced to 1/2.

## Ratio Calculator

## Calculator Use

The ratio calculator performs three types of operations and shows the steps to solve:

- Simplify ratios or create an equivalent ratio when one side of the ratio is empty.
- Solve ratios for the one missing value when comparing ratios or proportions.
- Compare ratios and evaluate as true or false to answer whether ratios or fractions are equivalent.

## Simplify Ratios:

## Compare Ratios and Solve for the Missing Value:

Enter A, B and C to find D. The calculator shows the steps and solves for D = C * (B/A)

Enter A, B and D to find C. The calculator shows the steps and solves for C = D * (A/B)

## Evaluate Equivalent Ratios:

## Convert Ratio to Fraction

To convert a part-to-part ratio to fractions:

- Add the ratio terms to get the whole. Use this as the denominator. 1 : 2 => 1 + 2 = 3
- Convert the ratio into fractions. Each ratio term becomes a numerator in a fraction. 1 : 2 => 1/3, 2/3
- Therefore, in the part-to-part ratio 1 : 2, 1 is 1/3 of the whole and 2 is 2/3 of the whole.

## What are Fractions?

- Fractions with like and unlike denominators
- Operations on fractions
- Fractions can be multiplied by using
- Let’s take a look at a few examples

## Solved Examples

A fraction in which the numerator is less than the denominator value is called a proper fraction.

For example , \(\frac{3}{4}\) , \(\frac{5}{7}\) , \(\frac{3}{8}\) are proper fractions.

Eg \(\frac{9}{4}\) , \(\frac{8}{8}\) , \(\frac{9}{4}\) are examples of improper fractions.

We express improper fractions as mixed numbers.

For example , 5\(\frac{1}{3}\) , 1\(\frac{4}{9}\) , 13\(\frac{7}{8}\) are mixed fractions.

## Fractions with Like and Unlike Denominators

\(\frac{1}{3}\) and \(\frac{1}{4}\) are unlike fractions as they both have a different denominator.

## Operations on Fractions

We can perform addition, subtraction, multiplication and division operations on fractions.

## Fractions can be Multiplied by Using:

## Let’s Take a Look at a Few Examples

Addition and subtraction using common denominator

( \(\frac{1}{6} ~+ ~\frac{2}{5}\) )

\(\frac{1}{6} ~+ ~\frac{2}{5}\)

( \(\frac{5}{2}~-~\frac{1}{6}\) )

Examples of Multiplication and Division

(\(\frac{1}{6}~\times~\frac{2}{5}\))

(\(\frac{2}{5}~÷~\frac{1}{6}\))

= (\(\frac{2 ~\times~ 5}{6~\times~ 1}\)) [Multiplying dividend with the reciprocal of divisor]

= (\(\frac{2 ~\times~ 6}{5 ~\times~ 1}\))

Example 1: Solve \(\frac{7}{8}\) + \(\frac{2}{3}\)

\(\frac{7}{8}\) + \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Example 2: Solve \(\frac{11}{13}\) – \(\frac{12}{17}\)

\(\frac{11}{13}\) – \(\frac{12}{17}\)

Example 3: Solve \(\frac{15}{13} ~\times~\frac{18}{17}\)

Multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators of the 2 fractions.

\(\frac{15}{13}~\times~\frac{18}{17}\)

= \(\frac{15~~\times~18}{13~~\times~~17}\)

Example 4: Solve \(\frac{25}{33}~\div~\frac{41}{45}\)

Divide by multiplying the dividend with the reciprocal of the divisor.

\(\frac{25}{33}~\div~\frac{41}{45}\)

= \(\frac{25~\times~45}{33~\times~41}\)

= \(\frac{7}{8}\) + \(\frac{3}{7}\)

= \(\frac{73}{56}~-~\frac{10}{11}\)

First \(\frac{15}{8}\) l needs to be converted to milliliters.

\(\frac{15}{8}\)l into milliliters = \(\frac{15}{8}\) x 1000 = 1875 ml

The number of oranges required for 1875 m l of juice = \(\frac{1875}{25}\) ml = 75 oranges

= \(\frac{1875}{200}~=~9\frac{3}{8}\) cups

Money made on selling 9 cups = 9 x 64 = 576 cents

Hence she makes 576 cents from her juice stand.

A ratio containing both mixed and proper fractions can be intimidating, causing you to draw a blank and eating into your time allowance. This is easily avoidable if you're confident in converting mixed fractions to improper fractions. All you need to remember are two simple rules: multiply the whole by the denominator, and add to the numerator.

Ratio problem solving is a collection of word problems that link together aspects of ratio and proportion into more real life questions. This requires you to be able to take key information from a question and use your knowledge of ratios (and other areas of the curriculum) to solve the problem.

Ratio Word Problems Here you will find a range of problem solving worksheets about ratio. The sheets involve using and applying knowledge to ratios to solve problems. The sheets have been put in order of difficulty, with the easiest first. Each problem sheet comes complete with an answer sheet. Using these sheets will help your child to:

Because you can reduce ratios, you can also do the opposite and increase them. In order to do so, you must multiply each piece of the ratio by the same amount (just as you had to divide by the same amount on each side to reduce the ratio).
