If you have a problem that states that the value of A = 8 and the ratio of A:B = 2:5, you will need to determine how many times the number A is divisible by the corresponding portion of the ratio. In this case, the “2” is the corresponding portion so we would divide 8 by 2 or 8 ÷ 2 = 4. We then must multiply the answer “4” by the portion of the ratio representing B. In this case the number “5” is the portion of the ratio representing B so we multiply 4 x 5 = 20. This then shows us that the ratio of A:B is 2:5 and A = 4 and B = 20.
