### Ratio homework, Q1&2, tamika816, oct.18

I am doing questions 1 and 2 on page 51

Q1) Janine wants to write the ratio of oranges to apples. How does she know whether to write 3:4 or 4:3?

A) Its 4:3 because the question says oranges TO apples, if it was a "to" then whatever is before the "to" goes first.

Q2) Your friend missed the class when ratios were introduced. Use an example and draw a diagram to explain the difference between a part-to-part ratio and a part-to-whole ratio.

A) Example of part-to-part :
The example is the amount of black beads to the amount of white beads.

Example of part-to-whole:
The example is the amount of black beads to the total amount of beads.

1. Good Job Tamika! I liked how you use pictures to explain your answer and also explained the answer very clearly. Again Good job Tamika!

2. Good job , I liked the pictures that you used to explain

3. good job i liked how you discribed the ratio of the oranges To apples, and the ratios to the black to white beads

4. I agree with you tamika that before "to" goes first...and i like your example it really helps
