Ratio Part to Part Worksheet

Welcome to our Ratio Part to Part worksheet page.

Here you will find our range of 5th Grade Ratio worksheets which will help your child learn about ratios in a practical context.

Ratio Part to Part Worksheets

Our ratio worksheets have all been designed to use pictures and practical contexts to support understanding about ratios.

The sheets have been put in order of difficulty, with the easiest first.

Each problem sheet comes complete with an answer sheet.

There are two sections to our worksheets:

  • the first section involves using the image to work out the ratio.
  • the second section involves coloring in the objects to show the required ratio.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • learn about how ratio works;
  • write and use ratios in their lowest terms;

How does Ratio work?

How to work out Part to Part Ratios

When we look at ratios, we are usually looking at the relationship of one object compared to another.

An example might be the relationship between the number of cars and the number of wheels.

In the case of cars and tyres the relationship (for most cars) is that there are 4 wheels for each car.

We would say that the ratio of cars to wheels is 1 to 4 or 1:4 (for each car, there are 4 wheels)


What does lowest term ratio mean?

Just like fractions, ratios can be simplified.

We can simplify ratios by finding common factors of the numbers involved and dividing them all by the common factors.

The ratios are in lowest terms (or simplest form) when there are no more common factors except 1.

Look at the example below:

rabbits cats image

The ratio of rabbits to cats is 4 to 2 or 4:2.

Because these two numbers have a common factor of 2, they can both be divided by 2 to give a simpler ratio.

So 4 : 2 = (4 ÷ 2) : (2 ÷ 2) = 2 : 1

There are now no common factors apart from 1, so we cannot simplify the ratio further.

So the ratio of rabbits to cats in lowest terms is 2:1. This means that there are 2 rabbits for every cat.

Find the Ratio Part to Part Worksheets Section 1

Sheet 1 involves finding simple ratios with no need to convert to lowest terms.

Sheet 2 is similar to Sheet 1 but involves recording the ratio in 2 different ways (in the form: __ to __ and __ : __)

Sheet 3 involves recording ratios in 3 ways (using 'to', using ':' and as a fraction of one object compared to the other).

Sheet 4 involves recording ratios in lowest terms.

Sheet 5 involves recording ratios in lowest terms to 3 different objects.

Section 2 - Ratio Part to Part Color In Worksheets

These sheets involve coloring the objects according to the given ratios.

Sheet 1 involves coloring in objects and recording numbers of objects where the ratios match the total number of objects.

Sheet 2 is similar to Sheet 1, but the number of objects is sometimes a multiple of the ratios.

Sheet 3 similar to Sheet 2, but with a greater number of objects.
