- [($ 18 ÷12)/(12 boxes ÷12)] = [$ 1.5/box]

A car goes 200 mi on 5 gallons of gas

- [(200 mi ÷5)/(5 gallons ÷5)] = [(40 mi)/gallon]

A box falls 130 ft in 10 seconds

- [(130 ft ÷10)/(10 seconds ÷10)] = [(13 ft)/second]

- 1 mi = 5280 ft

1 hour = 60 min - [(10 mi)/(1 hour)] ·[(5280 ft)/(1 mi)] ·[(1 hour)/(60 min)] = [(880 ft)/min]
- [(880 ft)/min] ·[(10 min)/(10 min)] = [(8800 ft)/(10 min)]

- 1 gal = 4 qts
- 1 min = 60 seconds
- [(2 gal)/(1 min)] ·[(4 qts)/(1 gal)] ·[(1 min)/(60 seconds)] = [(8 qts)/(60 seconds)]
- [(8 qts ÷2)/(60 seconds ÷2)] = [(4 qts)/(30 seconds)]

### Transcription: Ratio

*Welcome back to Educator.com; for the next lesson, we are going to go over ratio.*0000

*A ratio is when you compare two things.*0007

*You are making a comparison between two quantities; it is also same as division.*0011

*If you look here, there is three ways to express a ratio.*0020

*There is three ways to write a ratio.*0023

*If A is 1 and B is something else, you can say A to B.*0028

*You can write it out, A to B.*0033

*All this, whether you write it like this, like this, or like this, they are all read as A to B.*0036

*But you can write it like this, like this using a colon or as a fraction A to B.*0045

*You are still comparing A and B.*0053

*For example, if I said what is the ratio, you are comparing boys to girls.*0056

*Because I said boys first, boys is going to be written as A, the first one.*0064

*Then girls has to be the second one; boys to girls.*0071

*If I ask for the ratio of boys to girls, then I can't give you the number of girls to boys.*0077

*You can't do this. You have to write out the ratio in the order that was asked for; boys to girls.*0086

*If I say there are 5 boys and there are 3 girls, then the ratio of boys to girls would be 5 to 3.*0095

*You can also write it as 5 to 3 like that.*0108

*If I ask you what is the ratio of girls to boys, then you would have to*0114

*give me this number first, the number of girls to the number of boys.*0117

*You always have to write out the ratio in the order that it was asked for.*0124

*A to B, A:B, and A/B as a fraction; this is called ratio.*0132

*A rate is a ratio; you are still comparing A to B.*0141

*But you are given different rates; for example, if I say miles per hour.*0148

*Miles per hour would be... you have the number of miles and you have however many number of hours.*0158

*You are comparing, you are making a ratio between the number of miles and the number of hours.*0169

*A rate would be a ratio, same thing, A to B, but using different rates.*0175

*If I say $5 for 5 candies, then that is a ratio.*0183

*You are making the comparison between the amount over the number of candy.*0194

*If you make a comparison between two things, it is called a ratio.*0204

*When those two things have some kind of unit, then it is called a rate.*0209

*A unit rate is a rate with a denominator of 1.*0219

*That means that if I say I traveled 2 miles in 2 hours.*0225

*Here is my ratio, 2 miles every 2 hours; this is my ratio.*0239

*A unit rate would mean to make this, the denominator, the bottom number, a 1.*0247

*That means I need to change this to become 1 hour.*0255

*That would be a unit rate.*0259

*That means in order to turn this 2 into a 1, I have to divide the 2.*0261

*I am going to divide this by 2 which means I have to divide the top number by 2.*0267

*This would be 1 mile per hour because it is 1 hour.*0274

*1 mile per hour would be the unit rate.*0282

*This alone would just be a rate.*0286

*But when you make the denominator a 1, a unit of 1, then this is a unit rate.*0290

*This here is a unit rate because the denominator is 1.*0298

*Here is an example; $10 per 20 pieces; that is like the candy example.*0306

*If it is $10 for every 20 pieces,*0310

*in order to give me a unit rate, I want to find out how much it is per piece.*0323

*One piece, I am turning this denominator into a 1.*0328

*That means in order to turn this denominator into 1, I have to divide it by this number, divide it by itself.*0333

*That means I have to divide this top number.*0340

*Because this is money, I want to change it to a decimal.*0346

*I know that 10 divided by 20 or 10 divided by 20 is going to give me 0.5.*0350

*0.5 in money is the same thing as 50 cents.*0368

*If I add a 0 here, that becomes 50 cents.*0373

*Not 5 cents, be careful; this is 50 cents.*0375

*The unit rate would be 50 cents per piece.*0380

*I can put 1 in front of it if I want.*0391

*But if I just say per piece, then I am talking about 1 piece.*0393

*You can leave it like this; this would be your unit rate.*0400

*When you are converting rates, rate remember it is a ratio of two different rates.*0408

*You have different units on the top and the bottom; that is a rate.*0416

*To convert rates means you are going to go from whatever rates they give you,*0422

*whatever units they give you, and you are changing it to something else, changing it to different rates.*0429

*You are converting them.*0433

*For example, if I have miles per hour, let's say I want miles per hour.*0435

*I am going to put miles on top; I am going to put... 1 mile per hour.*0444

*This is the rate that I am starting off with.*0451

*I want to convert it to feet per minute.*0455

*This is miles; mi is miles; min is for minutes.*0467

*I am going to convert this number here, this ratio, this rate, to this rate, this ratio.*0471

*Remember rates are ratios; I am going to convert this to this.*0482

*That means miles I need to change to feet and hours I am going to change to minutes.*0486

*Miles and feet, they are both measurements of distance.*0493

*Mile and feet, they are both measuring the distance of something.*0498

*Hour and minutes, they are both measuring time.*0503

*I can convert miles to feet and hours to minutes.*0507

*In order for you to be able to convert rates, this to this, you have to know the equivalent units.*0512

*How many feet equals a mile?--1 mile equals 5280 feet.*0525

*This and this are the same; 1 mile is equal to 5280 feet.*0540

*Same thing for hours and minutes; I know that 60 minutes equals 1 hour.*0545

*If it helps, you need to just write this on the side.*0556

*You are going to use this to help you convert rates.*0559

*First thing I do, I am going to start here and I am going to end here.*0565

*I am going to change all these into these.*0571

*I am going to start from 1 mile to 1 hour.*0574

*I am going to multiply it to different units because I can cross cancel things out.*0582

*If I say that 5280 feet is the same thing as 1 mile, if they equal each other,*0594

*then I can say 5280 feet over 1 mile is going to equal 1 because this number and this are the same thing.*0603

*We said they are equal; this over this is equal to 1.*0623

*Anything over itself is 1.*0629

*If I said, for example, 5/5, isn't that 1?--because it is the same number over itself.*0631

*Same thing here; this equals this.*0638

*If I say 5280 feet over 5280 feet, isn't that equal to 1?*0642

*This does equal 5280 feet.*0649

*If I write it like this, you have to understand that this is the same thing as 1.*0653

*If I multiply this by 1, I am not changing this.*0659

*I can multiply this by 1 if I want because it doesn't change.*0665

*Instead of multiplying it by 1, I want to multiply it by this.*0670

*This is the same thing as 1.*0674

*I am going to multiply all this to this.*0682

*I want the miles to go away because the miles is going to have to change to feet.*0689

*I need to the miles to go away.*0696

*In order for me to cross cancel the miles, I have to have one on the top and one on the bottom.*0697

*This miles is going to go down here.*0702

*On the top, it is going to go 5280 feet.*0705

*That way this and this will cancel.*0718

*Again this whole thing is just equal to 1.*0724

*I can just multiply it to this if I want.*0730

*It is not going to change my answer because I am just multiplying it by 1.*0734

*Same thing for hours.*0740

*I also know that since this 60 minutes is equal to 1 hour,*0743

*if I put 60 minutes and I divide it by 1 hour,*0749

*since this whole thing equals this whole thing, this is also equal to 1, isn't it?*0755

*They equal each other.*0760

*Whenever the top and the bottom equal each other, that always equals 1.*0762

*I want to multiply this whole thing to this whole thing because again this is equal to 1.*0769

*I want the hours to go away.*0777

*That means if this is already in the bottom, then I need to write this on the top.*0779

*This is going to go 1 hour over 60 minutes.*0783

*I just flip this; this went to the top; this went to the bottom.*0790

*Because again if this is the same thing as this, then isn't this over this the same thing?*0795

*I am writing it on the top and the bottom, depending on where I have to cancel it.*0803

*If this is already in the bottom, then I need to cancel this.*0808

*That is going to go like that.*0811

*If I look on the top, what units am I left with?--feet.*0816

*For my answer, if I multiply all this out, then I am going to be left with feet which is what I want.*0823

*On the bottom, what am I left with?--minutes.*0828

*That is what I want left on the bottom.*0834

*I know that all I have to do is now solve this out.*0836

*I cancelled out everything that I need to cancel out.*0840

*If I just multiply this out and then multiply that out, solve for it, I will get my answer.*0844

*Here my top is going to be 1 times 5280 times 1 which is 5280 feet over 60 minutes.*0852

*1 mile per hour is the same thing as 5280 feet over 60 minutes.*0873

*This would be my answer; I can simply this if I want.*0885

*This is a ratio, is a rate.*0890

*But if I want to change it to a unit rate, I can divide this by... let me use a different color.*0893

*I can divide this by 60 and then divide this by 60.*0901

*5280 divided by 60 is going to give me... I am going to cross out these 0s.*0910

*Remember you can cross out the 0s if you want.*0921

*It is going to give me... 8, 4, 8; it is going to give me 88.*0926

*Again to multiply this, you are going to do 6 times 8.*0949

*Write it out, 48; my remainder is 4.*0952

*I am going to bring down this 8; then 6 times 8 is 48.*0954

*My answer is 88 feet per minute; this would be my unit rate.*0966

*Let's do a few more examples; the first example, write in simplest form.*0981

*Here these are just ratios; it is comparing this number to this number.*0991

*They look like fractions.*0997

*But you can also think of these numbers, the top number and the bottom number as ratios.*0998

*It is like division.*1005

*To write this in simplest form, 12/36, I can look for a common factor.*1008

*The greatest common factor is 12 because 12 goes into 12 here and 12 goes into 36.*1019

*If you don't see that 12 is the biggest factor,*1030

*you can just look for any factor because 12 and 36 have a lot of common factors.*1032

*If you want, you can just divide the 2 first and then just keep making the numbers smaller.*1038

*You can divide this by 4; divide it by 3.*1043

*Since I know that 12 is my biggest factor, I am going to divide this by 12 and then divide this by 12.*1050

*Whenever I am going to simplify, then I need to divide both*1057

*the top number and the bottom number by the same number, the same factor.*1060

*This is 1 over... 36 divided by 12 is 3.*1066

*This is saying that the ratio of 12 to 36 is the same as 1 to 3.*1074

*They are the same ratio; they are equivalent; they are the same.*1081

*This next one, I know because this ends in a 0 and this ends in a 5, that they are both divisible by 5.*1088

*I am going to take 30 divided by 5; 35 divided by 5.*1100

*30 divided by 5 is 6; 35 divided by 5 is 7.*1108

*This is simplest form.*1118

*That means the ratio of 6 to 7 is the same as 30 to 35.*1119

*Same thing here; let's divide this by...*1125

*Again if you just see any common factor, you can just keep dividing until you get simplest form.*1128

*Or if you find the greatest factor, that would be the fastest way.*1137

*But let's say that we wanted to just divide this by 2 because I just noticed that they are both even.*1141

*That is not the greatest factor; but let's just do that first.*1147

*I am going to divide both the top and the bottom by 2.*1152

*This is going to be 8/12.*1155

*This is still not simplest form because they are both even still.*1161

*4. or maybe 2 if you just notice that they are both even numbers.*1167

*But from these two, the greatest factor is 4; let's just divide them by 4.*1174

*8 divided by 4 is 2; over 3; that would be simplest form.*1180

*For this, let's see, this is not an even number so I know that 2 is not going to go into them.*1187

*If I add these two together, 5 plus 1, that is 6.*1195

*6 is a multiple of 3.*1200

*This bottom one, 1 plus 9, 9 is a multiple of 3.*1204

*So I know that 3 can go into both of these.*1209

*Divide this one by 3; divide this one by 3; 51 divided 3.*1213

*If you don't know what that is, you can always just divide it.*1222

*51 divided by 3; 1; subtract the number; bring this down.*1226

*That will be 17 over... 18 divided by 3; 3 times what equals 18?*1236

*That is 6; that would be simplest form.*1246

*Next example, Tommy has 4 blue marbles, 3 green marbles, and 7 red marbles in a bag.*1254

*Find the ratio of red to blue marbles; 4 blue, 3 green, 7 red.*1264

*We want to find the ratio of red to blue.*1274

*The ratio is going to be red to blue.*1278

*How many red do we have?--7 to 4 blue.*1286

*Make sure you have to write it as 7 to 4 and not 4 to 7.*1292

*Because they ask for red first before the blue, you have to write out the red first.*1298

*It is 7 to 4; you can say 7 to 4.*1304

*Or you can say 7 to 4 like that as a fraction.*1309

*Next, out of 27 students in classroom, 15 are boys.*1317

*Find the ratio of boys to girls; ratio is boys to girls.*1323

*They don't give us a number of girls.*1333

*They just tell us that there is 15 boys.*1334

*But I know that if there is 27 students total and 15 are boys, then the rest of the students have to be girls.*1339

*I have to subtract 27 students minus 15; I am going to get 12.*1350

*That means I know that 15 are boys and 12 are girls.*1358

*The ratio of boys to girls would be 15 to 12 or 15/12.*1364

*Find the unit rate.*1379

*Remember unit rate is when you have a ratio and the bottom number, the denominator, has to be 1.*1380

*Here the ratio is 250 for every 2 dozen.*1389

*I want to find how much it is going to be for 1 dozen or how much per dozen.*1403

*Think of it as per.*1411

*Every time you see unit rate, you are going to think of per.*1413

*Per whatever the unit is on the bottom; how much per dozen?*1418

*That means I need to turn this into a 1.*1424

*I divide this by 2 then to turn 2 divided by 2 into 1.*1428

*Then I have to multiply the top by 2.*1433

*250 divided by 2.... remember to bring out the decimal.*1436

*It is going to be 1; 2; bring down the 5.*1444

*2; 4; 1; bring down the 0; 5.*1455

*Going to be $1.25 per dozen; there is my unit rate.*1460

*A car goes 300 miles... mi means miles... on 10 gallons of gas.*1479

*300 miles on 10 gallons of gas; find the unit rate.*1488

*That means I want to turn this into 1.*1498

*It is going to be how many miles per gallon.*1501

*Then again divide this by 10; divide the top number by 10.*1504

*300 divided by 10... every time you divide by a number with the 0 at the end of it,*1512

*and they both have 0s at the end, you can just cross out one of the 0s.*1519

*If I cross out this 0 and cross out this 0, then I am going to be left with 30.*1524

*30 miles per gallon; this is the unit rate.*1529

*A skydiver falls 240 feet in 5 seconds; 240 feet every 5 seconds.*1541

*How many feet per second?--1 second; divided by 5; divided by 5.*1556

*240... let's do it over here; 240 divided by 5 is going to be 4*1564

*because that is going to be 20; 4, 0; that will be 8.*1571

*48 feet per second; here is my unit rate.*1581

*The fourth example, we are going to convert the units.*1595

*This is going to be the most difficult part of this lesson.*1599

*But just make sure you are going to...*1603

*Just try to cancel out the units so that you end up with the units that you want for your answer.*1606

*A car is moving at 8 miles per hour.*1616

*I am going to write that as a fraction; 8 miles per hour.*1620

*I want to convert this to feet on the top with what units on the bottom?--minutes.*1627

*I know it is 10 minutes.*1638

*But then I just want to focus on converting these units first--miles per hour to feet per minute.*1639

*I am going to start off here; I am going to write that over 1 hour.*1657

*Again I am going to multiply; I want to turn the miles into feet.*1667

*On the side, let's find out... 5280 feet equals 1 mile; this equals this.*1673

*That means if I put this over that as a numerator and denominator, it is going to equal 1.*1685

*Why don't I just do that right now; I am going to do times...*1698

*From the feet and the miles, which one do I want to go as my numerator?*1701

*I want my miles to go on the denominator because I want them to cross cancel out.*1707

*From these two, I am going to put this on the bottom.*1714

*I am going to put 1 mile on the bottom and then 5280 feet as my numerator.*1717

*That way my miles cancel out.*1727

*Hours I am going to change to minutes; 1 hour equals 60 minutes.*1733

*Write that out first so you can see it; it is a lot easier.*1744

*Then from this and here, one is going to go on as my numerator.*1747

*One is going to go on my denominator.*1752

*Which one do I want to go on the top?*1755

*The hours because here the hours is on the bottom.*1758

*I want it to cancel out so I have to put it on the top.*1760

*This is going to go on the top; this is going to go on the bottom.*1763

*1 hour over 60 minutes; cross cancel that out.*1767

*Here I want to now solve this out because if I look at the top, what units are left on the top?*1779

*Feet is left which is what I want.*1789

*This is what I want my answer in; I am on the right track.*1791

*On the bottom, what do I want left?--minutes.*1797

*That is where I am at; so I am good.*1800

*Now I know I just have to multiply this out and solve these numbers out.*1803

*Before we start multiplying this times this and get a big number and then*1809

*have to divide by a big number, let's try to cross cancel some stuff out.*1813

*Anytime you are multiplying numbers and you have numbers on top and you have numbers on the bottom,*1820

*you can start cross cancelling things out if they have common factors.*1825

*First thing I see is I see a 0 here and I see a 0 here.*1829

*I can cross cancel those out.*1834

*This is going to change to 6; this is going to change to 528.*1840

*Cross out that 0; cross out that 0.*1846

*8 and 6, I know that they have a common denominator of 2.*1852

*I can cross this out, divide this by 2; I get 3; that changes to a 3.*1858

*I am going to change that because that common factor was a 2 so that changes to a 4.*1865

*That means I divided this by 2 and I divided this by 2.*1871

*This became 4; this became 3.*1875

*Here, does 528, is it divisible by 3?*1879

*If you add this, it becomes 5 plus 2 is 7; plus 8 is 15.*1886

*Is 15 a multiple of 3?--it is.*1892

*Therefore I know that this is divisible by 3.*1896

*If you are wondering what I just did, I used the divisibility rule.*1899

*The divisibility rule of 3 is you add up all the digits.*1905

*You are going to do 5 plus 2 plus 8 which gives you 15.*1911

*You are going to see if that number is a multiple of 3.*1918

*Does 3 go into that number?*1922

*5 plus 2 plus 8 is 15; 3 does go into 15.*1925

*I know that 3 will go into this number; 528 divided by 3.*1929

*This is 1; this becomes 3; subtract it; you get 2; bring this 2 down.*1940

*3 goes into 22 seven times; that is 21; 1; bring down the 8.*1948

*3 times 6 is 18; this goes away; this became 176.*1957

*Now all I have to do to find my answer is just...*1979

*Since the bottom number is 1 times 1 and these all canceled out, then it is just 1 times 1.*1983

*That is just 1 minute; I just multiplied all the numbers; I get this left.*1991

*On my top, my numerator, it is just 4 times 176.*1997

*That is 24; 7 times 4 is 28; add 2; this becomes feet.*2005

*This is in a unit rate; 704 feet per minute.*2037

*I want to know how many feet it will move in 10 minutes.*2045

*What does that mean?--this is my unit rate; I am converting the units.*2051

*This would be the correct answer.*2059

*But then it is asking me how many feet it will move in 10 minutes, not per minute.*2061

*If they asked how many feet it will move per minute or in one minute,*2069

*this would be my answer, 704 feet per minute, for one minute.*2074

*But since they are asking for 10 minutes, I need to change my denominator to a 10.*2079

*They are not asking for a unit rate.*2086

*They want to know how many feet for 10 minutes.*2088

*I need to change this 1 to a 10.*2093

*In order to do that, I have to multiply by 10.*2094

*Same thing here; I need to multiply by 10.*2098

*If I need to multiply this by 10, I just have to add a 0 at the end of it.*2102

*That is pretty easy.*2106

*It just becomes 7 thousand, 0, 4, add the 0, feet per 10 minutes.*2106

*My answer, how many feet?--it is 7040 feet.*2118

*I know that problem seemed a little bit complicated.*2128

*But all I had to do was convert the units at miles per hour to feet per minute which is what I did.*2131

*Multiply your top numbers across; multiply your bottom numbers across.*2139

*If you want, you didn't have to cross cancel all this stuff out.*2143

*That is why it looks so complicated, because we ended up cross cancelling numbers out.*2146

*But if you want, forget about the cross cancelling.*2150

*Just multiply all the numbers straight across; get this number.*2153

*Multiply all the bottom numbers straight across and get this number.*2158

*Then simplify if you want; you can do it that way.*2161

*Once we get this, this is per minute; denominator is 1.*2165

*This is our unit rate.*2170

*But then because they are asking for 10 minutes,*2173

*I need to change this denominator to 10 by multiplying by 10.*2174

*We multiply the top by 10; you get 7040 feet per 10 minutes.*2179

*Let's try one more problem; the sprinklers used 2 gallons per minute.*2187

*How many quarts will it use in 30 seconds?--again we have to convert units.*2194

*This is 2 gallons per minutes.*2202

*I want to convert this to quarts... this is quarts... per seconds.*2209

*I am going to put just 30 seconds here.*2219

*Question mark, how many quarters per 30 seconds?*2223

*I am going to start off with this again; 2 gallons per minute.*2226

*Since I need to convert gallons to quarts, I know that 1 gallon is equal to 4 quarts.*2237

*Remember if this is equal to this, I can change this to a fraction, 4 quarts over 1 gallon.*2254

*That is going to equal 1.*2262

*1 gallon over 4 quarts, that is also going to be the same.*2263

*I can multiply this by... what do I want to get rid of?*2269

*I want to get rid of the gallons first by using this.*2275

*The gallons is going to go on the bottom.*2280

*This one is going to go on the bottom; that way this will cancel like this.*2282

*This one will go on the top like that.*2287

*See how one goes on the bottom and one goes on the top?*2293

*Or one goes on the top and one goes on the bottom?*2295

*Just depends on what you have to cancel.*2299

*Then I need to convert minutes to seconds.*2303

*The minutes to seconds is going to be 1 minute is equal to 60 seconds.*2310

*I need to write the minute one on the top so that it will cancel.*2322

*This is going to go on the top; this is top, bottom.*2326

*1 minute over 60 seconds; minutes will cancel.*2330

*What units do I have left on the top?*2341

*I have quarts which is what I want.*2343

*And I have seconds on the bottom which is what I want.*2346

*Now I just have to solve it out.*2350

*If I want, I can cross cancel out this 2 and this 60.*2354

*2 goes into 2; this changes to a 1.*2359

*2 goes into 60; cut it in half; that is 30.*2362

*You can cross cancel out again.*2369

*But then otherwise you can just write it out; 4 quarts over 30 seconds.*2371

*The reason why I decided to leave it...*2384

*You could have cross cancelled it out; that is fine.*2386

*Here they ask for 30 seconds.*2390

*They want to know how many quarts will it use in 30 seconds.*2393

*Here it will be 4 quarts every 30 seconds.*2399

*I know that my answer will be 4; 4 quarts.*2404

*It is 4 quarts per 30 seconds; that is my answer.*2410

*That is it for this lesson; thank you for watching Educator.com.*2417

Awesome lesson. I love the cross-canceling you used to make converting units a lot simpler to solve. :)

I read about converting units as explained in this video a long time ago in a Saxon math textbook but never really understood how to do it. This video really clears everything up for me. Now I can do this without any hesitation or confusion. Thanks.

How would I solve this problem...A chain saw requires a mixture of 2-cycle engine oil and gasoline. According to the

directions on a bottle of Oregon 2-cycle Engine Oil, 2.5 fluid ounces of oil are required for

1 gallon of gasoline. For 2.75 gallons, how many fluid ounces of oil are required?
