In these worksheets, students will recognize, complete, and use proportions.

A ratio is a comparison of two numbers. A proportion, which is an equation with a ratio on each side, states that two ratios are equal. Mathematics is a really fun subject, even though it's a very popular opinion, but it really is fun. If you have strong concepts, things will get super exciting for you! What makes this subject confusing are the terms that are different but have definitions that are sound the same. One example is that of ratios and proportions. So, what are proportions and ratios? The first thing that you need to understand is that they both are different. Without understanding ratios, you will have a vague understanding of proportions. Ratios are "the quantitative relation between two amounts showing the number of times one value contains or is contained within the other." In simpler words, ratios indicate the number of times one number contains another. Proportions, on the other hand, are an indication that two ratios are equal.

In these worksheets, your students will use the numbers given to create proportions. They will use the cross multiplication method to solve for a variable in order to complete a proportion. They will determine whether the equality of given proportions is true or false. They will also use their understanding of proportion in order to find unknown lengths. This set of worksheets contains step-by-step solutions to sample problems, both simple and more complex problems, reviews, and quizzes. It also includes ample worksheets that can be used for independent practice. Problems are provided at both the basic skills and the intermediate skills levels. When finished with this set of worksheets, students will be able to recognize basic properties of a parabola by studying its equation. These worksheets explain how to recognize, complete, and use proportions. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
