#### Storyboard Text

• I wonder what it is, because today is our big day.. Epee!
• Wake up Dan! I hear mom calling us.
• kids I need you both to prepare party bags for 25 friends. But first I need to know how much items to buy. There should be a ratio of 6:3:2 candies, toys and balloons in each bag.
• That means we should buy 25 of each item
• No Jen, if we buy only 25 of each item there will only be one of each item in the bags.
• Dan, I don't understand what is RATIO.
• Ratio is one way of comparing numbers, or quantities of the same kind.
• I think I am starting to understand, but please explain more.
• Given the total number of party bags is 25, we need to multiply each number in the ratio times 25. 25 x 6 = 150 25 x 3 = 75 25 x 2 = 50
• We get 25!
• OK Jen, when we divide 6 into 150, what is our answer?
• 3 into 75 gives us 25 and 2 into 50 gives us 25.
• When we divide 3 into 75, and 2 into 50 how much do we get?
