Welcome to this, our second Medium level Eleven Plus maths quiz on ratios. As you will know if you have played the first, ratios are ways to express or show proportions of amounts. They are quite similar to fractions but slightly different.
The best way to explain is with an example:
Let’s say that the ratio of vegetarians to meat-eaters is 2:5. That means that for every 2 vegetarians there are 5 meat-eaters.
You can also represent this with fractions: In the above example 2⁄7 are vegetarians and 5⁄7 are meat-eaters. That’s because 2 + 5 = 7.
Okay then, now we’ve refreshed our memories, it’s time to get on with the quiz. Good luck!
