Patrick and Noah shared some toys in the ratio 4:1. If Noah had 4 toys, how many toys did Patrick have?
Because Patrick and Noah shared their toys in the ratio 4:1 when Patrick's name was listed first, it means Patrick had 4 times as many toys as Noah.
Patrick had 4 times of the toys Noah had, and Noah had 4 toys.
4 * 4 = 16
So Patrick has 16 toys in total.
Hope this helps :)
