In this well-organised worksheet, students are guided through simplifying ratios step by step using division by the highest common factor.
In sections A to E, students are given ratios and the highest common factor they can divide by, meaning they only have to provide a simplified answer. Discuss similarities in ratios that divide by the same factors to aid your learners' development.
Next, students are given the original and simplified ratios in sections F and G and tasked with stating the common factor that the original ratio was divided by.
Finally, section H sees students simplifying 24 ratios independently.
