You have made it to the third quiz in our Medium level Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Ratios. Give yourself a pat on the back! If you have already played the first two quizzes, then you will know that ratios are one way of comparing different proportions. They are very similar to fractions, but not exactly the same.
Imagine that you have 4 oranges and 6 apples. You can represent this as a fraction like so: 2⁄5 of the fruit are oranges, and 3⁄5 are apples.
You can represent the same information as a ratio like this: the ratio of oranges to apples is 2:3. Can you see the similarity? 2⁄5 and 3⁄5 = 2:5
Now for the quiz. Make sure you read the questions carefully – there’s at least one in there which might catch out the unwary!
