Ratio inquiry starts with a simple prompt of four numbers in boxes connected by arrows and suggests different approaches to the task that may be considered. It is suggested that students look at differences and multiplicative relations between the numbers.
An extension task in which an extra relation is added between boxes is also described. There are two resource sheets to accompany the prompt.
