Free worksheets for ratio word problems

This generator makes worksheets for simple word problems involving ratios. 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 answers 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?
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?

You can choose the number of problems, amount of workspace, font size, and whether there is a border around each problem. After you have generated a worksheet, you can just refresh the page from your browser window to get another worksheet with different problems but using the same options.

All worksheets come with an answer key.  You can print the worksheet directly from your browser, or save it on disk using the "Save as" command of your browser.
