Copy the questions again Find the L.C.M of the denominator Multiply the two ratio by the L.C.M Express the ratio in the simpliest form Copy the questions again Express the answer in fractions first ind the L.C.M of the denominator Change them into the same unit 1 m 2 = 1 m × 1 m = 100 cm × 100 cm = 10000 cm 2 6m 2 = 60000 cm 2 No unit Copy the questions again Find a : b Find b : c Letting k Rate and Ratio Simultaneous Equations in Two Unknowns Form 2 1. Definition of rate: a comparison of two different kinds of quantities by division. A unit must be stated . e.g. Rate of typing: 60 words / min; Rate of travelling Definition of ratio: a comparison of two quantities of the same kind by division. No unit is stated in ratio . e.g. Ratio of 1.5 hours to 40 minutes “ A to B” A must be the numerator and B must be the denominator . Question type 1: Simplification of ratios Example 1: Simplify Solution: = = = 20 : 60 = 1 : 3 Example 2: Simplify 1.7 : Solution: 1.7 : = = = 51 : 70 Example 3: Simplify 25 cm 2 : 6 m 2 Solution: Observe that the units are different 25 cm 2

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
