"We really love eTutorWorld!"

"We really love etutorworld!. Anand S and Pooja are excellent math teachers and are quick to respond with requests to tutor on any math topic!" - Kieran Y (via TrustSpot.io)

"My daughter gets distracted easily"

"My daughter gets distracted very easily and Ms. Medini and other teachers were patient with her and redirected her back to the courses.

With the help of Etutorworld, my daughter has been now selected in the Gifted and Talented Program   for the school district"

- Nivea Sharma (via TrustSpot.io)

For example,

The fact that the ratio of blue marbles to red marbles in a box is 3 to 4 tells us that for every 3 blue marbles, there are 4 red marbles; however, it does not tell us the number of blue or red marbles.

The order of terms in a ratio is important.

Notice that in the expression ‘the ratio of blue marbles to red marbles,’ ‘blue marbles’ came first. This order is important: whichever word comes first; its number must come first as well.

If the expression had been ‘the ratio of red marbles to blue marbles,’ then the numbers would have been ‘4 to 3.’

There have been times when we booked them last minute, but the teachers have been extremely well-prepared and the help desk at etutorworld is very prompt.

Our kid is doing much better with a higher score.

Ratios are similar to fractions. They can both be simplified by finding common factors. A simple trick to ease the process of solving is to always try to divide by the HCF (Highest Common Factor).

A ratio may be written as a: b or a/b or by the phrase ‘a to b’.

So, if two numbers are in the ratio 1:6 it simply means that the second number is six times as large as the first.
