"*Wyatt drew 12 pictures in 5 minutes*"

12 pictures in 5 minutes as a ratio is...

12:5

"*Logan drew 14 pictures in 6 minutes*"

14 pictures in 6 minutes as a ratio is...

14:6

We need to figure out who drew at a faster rate. Remembering that ratios are fractions we can turn them into fractions.

12/5 and 14/6

We need to make the denominators (or the bases) the same to see who draws faster. So we should multiply the top and bottom by a number!

The least number that 5 and 6 are both multiples with is 30

To turn 12/5 into x/30 we need to multiply the top and bottom by 6

this turns it into 72/30 is Wyatts

To turn 14/6 into x/30 we need to multiply it by 5

this turns into 70/30 is Logans

72 paintings in 30 minutes are greater than 70 paintings in 30 minutes so Wyatt is faster!

Hope this helped
