## Here’s how to do Ratio Tables

A Ratio Table is a table of values that show the relationship between two quantities. Ratio Tables are very helpful when working with relationships because they make it easier to understand the relationship between the two quantities. You can create a Ratio Table by multiplying the two quantities by the same number to fill in the table. You can also create a Ratio Table by dividing the two quantities by the same number to fill in the table. All of the values in the table will be equivalent ratios which allows you to reduce fractions or amounts to their most reduced form.

Common Core Standard: 6.RP.2

## What are Ratio Tables?

So what is a ratio table anyway? A table that displays the connection between two separate quantities is called a Ratio Table. Ratio Tables are very useful while operating with relationships because they make it easier to understand the connection between the two quantities. In order to create a Ratio Table, you multiply or divide the two quantities by the same amount to fill in the table with the correct values.

## 3 Easy Steps to complete Equivalent Ratio Tables

1. Complete the Ratio Table Example by filling in the correct amount in each missing spot.
2. You can find the missing amounts by using multiplication or division to find the equivalent ratios.
3. Once you know the number that you have to multiply or divide by to fill in the table, you can use it to complete the table.

Let’s complete a couple practice problems on our ratio tables worksheet. The first problem we’re going to complete on our ratio tables worksheet to show you how to do a ratio table is number one. The directions say complete each ratio table by finding the missing values. Again, we can use multiplication or division to figure out what our common multiplier is since the ratio tables show the relationship between two quantities. The relationship will always be constant. You will always be able to multiply by a constant multiplier. If you can look at this and determine how you go what you can multiply the x column by to get to the y column then you don’t have to do division. I’m going to use division just to show an example. We’re going to do the y column which is 6 divided by the x column which is 2 to figure out the common multiplier 6 divided by 2 is 3. I know to go from x to y we multiply times three for the first row. For the second row should be the same so we’re going to do nine divided by three which is also three. I know the common multiplier again is three and we can use the common multiplier to figure out our missing values and our last two cells the third x is 4. We’re going to use 4 times our common multiplier which is 3, that’s 12. I know that cell is 12, and then 5 times 3 I know is 15, I know the last cell is 15. And this is how you complete a ratio table that shows a relationship between two separate quantities.

The last problem we’re going to complete on our ratio tables worksheet to show you how to complete a ratio table is number five. This problem gives us an x column and a y column and we have to fill in the missing cells. In order to fill in the missing cells this time we cannot use the first row because we’re missing the y value but we can use the second row and we can use the last row. Again, if you can look at this and determine what the multiplier is going to be you don’t have to do division. I’m going to use division just to show you so we’re going to divide the y column divided by the x column. This first one is going to be 14 divided by seven this will give us our common multiplier which is two 14 divided by seven is two. We do seven times two to get fourteen and then you do the same thing for the last row but this time it’s 26 divided by 13 which is also 2. I know the common multiplier is 2. I can do times 2 for the remaining rows to find the missing values four times two is eight. That’s our first missing value and then ten times two is twenty. That’s our last missing value hopefully you found this video helpful for teaching you how to solve a ratio table.
