Representing a Context with a Ratio

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is to introduce students to ratios and ratio language. A teacher might use this task as an opportunity to discuss alternate ways to say a ratio relationship; for example, using the word 'to' in place of a colon as shown in the solution. This task is meant to demonstrate a few nuances to teachers using the task. First, that the order that numbers are written in a ratio does not depend on the order in which things are stated in the question stem.
