### MEAP Preparation - Grade 7 Mathematics2.8 Find The Greater Ratio In Each Pair

 Method: If the consequents of the two ratios are the same, compare their antecedents. Otherwise, find the LCM of the consequents. Rewrite the two ratios such that the consequents become equal to the LCM found above. Compare the antecedents. Examples: 1) Which ratio is greater -- 2:3 or 3:2? Take the L.C.M. of consequents of the given ratios, 3 x 2 = 6. Now 2:3 = 2x2:3x2 = 4:6 3:2 = 3x3:2x3 = 9:6 Now that the consequents are equal, just compare the antecedents. Since 9 is greater than 4, the ratio 9:6 is greater than 4:6. Hence, 3:2 is greater than 2:3. 2) Which ratio is greater -- 21:32 or 73:32? Since the consequents are equal, just compare the antecedents. 73 is greater than 21. Therefore, 73:32 is greater than 21:32. Directions: Find the ratio that is greater. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
