After this lesson, you will be able to identify equivalent ratios and find their missing values using a ratio table.

The lesson begins by reviewing the definition of ratios and the three ways of how to write them. It leads you to learn how to complete a table of equivalent ratios. It concludes by teaching you how to determine other values of equivalent ratios using the ratio table.

Learn about determining equivalent ratios by finding out how Junior Moranis restores the size of his shrunk sister.

This video includes key concepts, notation, and vocabulary such as ratio (a relationship between two non-zero quantities or numbers); equivalent ratios (a set of paired quantities or ratios that have the same or equivalent value); and ratio table (which is a table that lists ratios which has the same or equivalent value).

Before watching this video, you should already be familiar with fractions, especially equivalent fractions, fractions written in simplest form, tables, and ratios.

After watching this video, you will be prepared to fill in more complicated ratio tables that use mathematical properties, such as inverses, and to convert ratio tables into double number lines.
