## Some important Facts about Ratio and Proportion worksheet for class 6

1. For comparing quantities of the same type, we commonly use the method of taking difference between the quantities.
2. In many situations, a more meaningful comparison between quantities is made by using division, i.e. by seeing how many times one quantity is to the other quantity. This method is known as comparison by ratio. For example, Isha’s weight is 25 kg and her father’s weight is 75 kg. We say that Isha’s father’s weight and Isha’s weight are in the ratio 3 : 1.
3. For comparison by ratio, the two quantities must be in the same unit. If they are not, they should be expressed in the same unit before the ratio is taken.
4. The same ratio may occur in different situations.
5. Note that the ratio 3 : 2 is different from 2 : 3. Thus, the order in which quantities are taken to express their ratio is important.

## Proportion

Consider this situation : Raju went to the market to purchase tomatoes. One shopkeeper tells him that the cost of tomatoes is  40 for 5 kg. Another shopkeeper gives the cost as 6 kg for  42. Now, what should Raju do? Should he purchase tomatoes from the first shopkeeper or from the second? Will the comparison by taking the difference help him decide? No. Why not? Think of some way to help him. Discuss with your friends. Consider another example.
