## Proportions Word Problems Worksheet: Answers and Explanations

- Worksheets By Grade
- Math Tutorials
- Pre Algebra & Algebra
- Exponential Decay
- B.B.A., Finance and Economics, University of Oklahoma

## Real World Uses of Proportions

- Modifying a budget for a restaurant chain that is expanding from 3 locations to 20 locations
- Creating a skyscraper from blueprints
- Calculating tips, commissions, and sales tax

## Modifying a Recipe

## Algebra and Proportions 1

- 3 servings of cooked rice = 2 cups of water; 1 cup of dry rice 25 servings of cooked rice = ? cups of water; ? cup of dry rice
- 3 servings of cooked rice/25 servings of cooked rice = 2 cups of water/ x cups of water
- 3/25 = 2/ x

## Ratio and Proportions Word Problem 1: The Brownie Recipe

## Ratio and Proportions Word Problem 2: Growing Little Piglets

Cross Multiply. 3 * x = 36 * 18 3 x = 648

Divide both sides by 3 to solve for x . 3 x /3 = 648/3 x = 216 216 hours

## Ratio and Proportions Word Problem 3: The Hungry Rabbit

Cross Multiply. 70 * x = 80 * 87.5 70 x = 7000

Divide both sides by 70 to solve for x . 70 x /70 = 7000/70 x = 100

Use Algebra to verify the answer. Is 70/87.5 = 80/100? 70/87.5 = .8 80/100 = .8

## Ratio and Proportions Word Problem 4: The Long Road Trip

Cross Multiply. 130 * x = 2 * 1000 130 x = 2000

Divide both sides of the equation by 130 to solve for x . 130 x /130 = 2000/130 x = 15.38 hours

Dividing a quantity into a ratio

## Ratio Problem Solving

## What is ratio problem solving?

- What is the ratio involved?
- What order are the quantities in the ratio?
- What is the total amount / what is the part of the total amount known?
- What are you trying to calculate ?

Let’s look at a couple of methods we can use when given certain pieces of information.

Charlie and David share 40 sweets, how many sweets do they each get?

We use the ratio to divide 40 sweets into 8 equal parts.

Then we multiply each part of the ratio by 5.

This means that Charlie will get 15 sweets and David will get 25 sweets.

Step-by-step guide: Dividing ratios (coming soon)

## Ratios and fractions (proportion problems)

Step-by-step guide: Ratios and fractions (coming soon)

## Simplifying and equivalent ratios

## Units and conversions ratio questions

Units and conversions are usually equivalent ratio problems (see above).

- If £1:\$1.37 and we wanted to convert £10 into dollars, we would multiply both sides of the ratio by 10 to get £10 is equivalent to \$13.70.
- The scale on a map is 1:25,000. I measure 12cm on the map. How far is this in real life, in kilometres? After multiplying both parts of the ratio by 12 you must then convert 12 \times 25000=300000 \ cm to km by dividing the solution by 100 \ 000 to get 3km.

Top tip: if you are converting units, always write the units in your ratio.

## How to do ratio problem solving

In order to solve problems including ratios:

Identify key information within the question.

Know what you are trying to calculate.

Use prior knowledge to structure a solution.

## Explain how to do ratio problem solving

## Ratio problem solving worksheet

## Related lessons on ratio

## Ratio problem solving examples

Where the letter above each part of the ratio links to the question.

We know that 465 students have school dinner.

2 Know what you are trying to calculate.

We need to find the value of p.

3 Use prior knowledge to structure a solution.

So the value of p is equal to 7 \times 93=651.

There are 651 students that have a packed lunch.

## Example 2: unit conversions

The table below shows the currency conversions on one day.

Use the table above to convert £520 (GBP) to Euros € (EUR).

Use the table above to convert \bf{£520} (GBP) to Euros \bf{€} (EUR).

## Example 3: writing a ratio 1:n

So we can also express the ratio as 500:2000 which will help us in later steps.

We want to simplify the ratio 500:2000 into the form 1:n.

So the ratio of plant food to water in the form 1:n is 1:4.

## Example 4: forming and solving an equation

We also know that Luke receives £8.

We want to calculate the total amount of pocket money for the three siblings.

The total amount of pocket money is therefore 4+7+8=£19.

## Example 5: simplifying ratios

Below is a bar chart showing the results for the colours of counters in a bag.

Express this data as a ratio in its simplest form.

From the bar chart, we can read the frequencies to create the ratio.

We need to simplify this ratio.

Dividing all the parts of the ratio by 2 , we get

## Example 6: combining two ratios

We are trying to find the ratio of all 3 components: silica, lime and soda.

## Example 7: using bar modelling

We know that the initial ratio is 5:2 and that India has three more parts than Beau.

We want to find the original quantity.

Drawing a bar model of this problem, we have

Where India has 5 equal shares, and Beau has 2 equal shares.

We can find the value of one share by working out 75 \div 3=25g.

We can fill in each share to be 25g.

The total amount of popcorn was 125+50=175g.

## Common misconceptions

## Practice ratio problem solving questions

8-3=5 computer games sold for every 3 board games.

4. The angles in a triangle are written as the ratio x:2x:3x. Calculate the size of each angle.

## Ratio problem solving GCSE questions

1. One mole of water weighs 18 grams and contains 6.02 \times 10^{23} water molecules.

Write this in the form 1gram:n where n represents the number of water molecules in standard form.

Calculate the length of the plank of wood.

5-3=2 \ parts = 36cm so 1 \ part = 18cm

(b) Sally is 16 years younger than Kim. Calculate the sum of their ages.

## Learning checklist

- Relate the language of ratios and the associated calculations to the arithmetic of fractions and to linear functions
- Develop their mathematical knowledge, in part through solving problems and evaluating the outcomes, including multi-step problems
- Make and use connections between different parts of mathematics to solve problems
