Sample Problem

There is 25 ml of coke in a glass. There is 600 ml of coke in a bottle.

(a) What is the ratio of the amount of coke in the glass to the amount of coke in the bottle? (Simplify your answer)

 

(b) The amount of the coke in the glass is what fraction of the amount of coke in the bottle? (Simplify your answer)

(c) The amount of coke in the bottle is how many times the amount of coke in the glass?

Solution

(a) There is 25 ml of coke in a glass while there is 600 ml of coke in a bottle, so the ratio is 25:600 =1:24.

(b) 25:600 and 25/600 express the same relationship between the amount of coke in the glass and in the bottle. Thus, the fraction is 25/600 = 1/24.

(c) 600 ÷ 25 = 24, thus the times is 24.
