**Free worksheets for ratio word problems**

Find here an unlimited supply of worksheets with simple word problems involving ratios, meant for 6th-8th grade math. In **level 1**, the problems ask for a specific ratio (such as, "*Noah drew 9 hearts, 6 stars, and 12 circles. What is the ratio of circles to hearts?*"). In **level 2**, the problems are the same but the ratios are supposed to be simplified.

**Level 3** contains varied word problems, similar to these:

*A bag contains 60 marbles, some blue and some green. The ratio of blue marbles to green ones is 1 : 5. How many blue marbles are there?*

or

*A truck is carrying mango juice, tomato juice, and passion fruit juice bottles in a ratio of 4 : 4 : 3. If there are 1020 passion fruit juice bottles, then how many juice bottles in total are there?*

Options include choosing the number of problems, the amount of workspace, font size, a border around each problem, and more. The worksheets can be generated as PDF or html files.
