How To Find Ratio: Tutorial, Examples, And More

Image
In this class, we going to focus on providing information about how to find ratios.

The term ratio can be described as a mathematical expressions that compare two or more quantities and numbers.

Ratio can compare absolute amounts and quantities, and can also be used to compare portions of a larger whole. Ratios can be written and calculated in fractions and in percentages.

However, the basic principles governing the use of ratios are universally the same.

Uses Of Ratios
Ratios can be used in both real world and in school settings to compare the differences between two or more quantities.

The simplest form of ratio compare only two numbers or quantities.

However, ratios can also be used to compare more than 3 quantities and numbers.

For example:

In a basket containing different types of vegetables and fruits such as spinach, apricot, cabbage, carrot, avocado, apple, and oranges. All these can be expressed in form of a ratio.

Ratio is only used when two or more numbers and quantities ar…

Assuming, you are asked to divide 448 by 4. According to the distributive property of division, 448 can be broken down into two or more smaller parts in order to make the operation easier.

In practice:

448 = 400 + 40 + 8

And also:

448/4 = 400/4 + 40/4 + 8/4
112 = 100 + 10 + 2
112 = 112

From above the example, you can understand that it is much more easier to divide 400, 40, and 8 than directly dividing  448 by 4.

Let's look at another example:

Divide 192 by 6

In this example of division, you can break down 192 into smaller parts as follows: 60, 60, 60 and 12, thus making the division much more easier.

Let's do this in practice:

192 = 60 + 60 + 60 + 12

Using distributive property of division

192/6 = 60/6+60/6+60/6+12/6
           = 10+10+10+2
           = 32

More Examples Of Distributive Property Of Division


Example 1

Divide 921 by 3

Answer

921 = 900 + 21

Using distributive property of division

921/3 = 900/3 + 21/3
          = 300 + 7
          = 307

Example 2

Divide 80 by 16

Answer

80 = 32 + 32 +16

Using distributive property of division

80/16 = 32/16 + 32/16 + 16/16
           = 2 + 2 + 1
           = 5


Example 3


Evaluate 1/4(x +8)

Answer


1/4(x+8) = 1/4x + 8/4
                 = 1/4x + 2

Conclusion


I hope this guide gives you an excellent help in understanding the distributive property of division. 

We would love listening to your words about the distributive property of division.
