The mass of the top quark is measured in a data set corresponding to 4.6 fb⁻¹ of proton-proton collisions with centre-of-mass energy √s=7 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Events consistent with hadronic decays of top-antitop quark pairs with at least six jets in the final state are selected. The substantial background from multijetproduction is modelled with data-driven methods that utilise the number of identified b -quark jets and the transverse momentum of the sixth leading jet,which have minimal correlation. The top-quark mass is obtained from template fits to the ratio of three-jet to dijet mass. The three-jet mass is calculated from the three jets produced in a top-quark decay. Using these three jets the dijet mass is obtained from the two jets produced in the W boson decay. The top-quark mass obtained from this fit is thus less sensitive to the uncertainty in the energy measurement of the jets. A binned likelihood fit yields a top-quark mass of m t =175.1±1.4 (stat) ±1.2 (syst) GeV.
