Equivalent Ratios are?
• Equivalent Ratios: ratios that name the same
comparison or that have the same value.
Equivalent Ratios
• You can find equivalent ratios by using table or
multiplying or dividing both terms of the ratio
by the same number.
Multiply both terms by the same number.
• Ratio: 3 cats to 5 dogs
• You can write an equivalent ratio by
multiplying both terms by the same number.
• So multiply both terms by 2.
• An equivalent ratio would be
• 6 to 10
• 5
• 7
n
35
• N=
• What did you do to 7 to get to 35. You must
do the same to 5.

• 6:21
• 3
