Conas atá sibh? Tá súil agam go raibh deireadh seachtaine álainn ag gach duine. My weekend brought me back to my childhood with my own children. Walked over fields that I have not trekked through since the huge snow storm of 2018. Anybody interested in reading up on it, feel free to hit the link below.
Anyway, our walk brought all 5 of us to a part of a river flowing through the 'creek' or mini-valley near the motorway where I, along with my friends, built dams, wooden huts and rafts all those years ago. Fantastic times and memories !!! No time for dams on Saturday though- trying to keep Maggie out of the water was a task in itself. Make sure you all get outside and get creative when you can...It will keep your mind clear and in a healthy place.

There are different ways we use to write ratios, and they all mean the same thing. Here are some of the ways you can write the ratios for the numbers of B (Boys) and G (Girls):
the ratio of B to G
B is to G
Note that when writing the ratio you place the first term first. This seems obvious, but when you see the question or ratio written as "the ratio of B to G" then you write the ratio B:G. If the ratio was written "the ratio of G to B" then you would write it as G:B
Also, you could compare a mixed bag of 20 fruit as follows:
If it contained 10 apples, 5 oranges, 3 bananas and 2 kiwis then the ratio is.....
