## Convert a Ratio to a Percentage

Are your students learning how to relate ratios and percentages? Do they understand how to convert between these two values? When teaching this math skill to your students, it is important for students to understand that a ratio, while often written with a colon, can be represented in the form of a fraction as well. To convert a ratio to a percentage, students simply have to write the ratio as a fraction, multiply it by 100 and simplify.

Teach Starter has created a fun worksheet for you to use with your class to strengthen their understanding of how to convert ratios and percentages. With this color-by-number worksheet, students will solve 35 problems where they must convert a ratio to a percentage. Afterward, students will use the color key to reveal a mystery image.
