In Year 5, the third year in KS2 Maths, you'll learn a cool thing! It's about comparing numbers using ratios. Imagine numbers on either side of a colon, like 2:1 or 3:1 - that's a ratio. It's like saying how things relate to each other.
For example, in a bowl of fruit, there are 8 apples and 6 pears. The ratio of apples to pears is 8:6 (or 4:3, which is the same). Turn it around, and it's the ratio of pears to apples, 6:8 (or 3:4). Ratios help us understand how amounts compare!
