Ratios are used to show the relationship between two numbers.

Ratios can be written in the form of a fraction.

Fractions can then be thought of as ratios.

Using the illustration we can develop a ratio of frogs to pond flowers.

There are 4 frogs and 12 flowers.

 

 
Equivalent fractions are fractions of equal value but represented as different ratios.
