Ratio is a mathematical concept that represents the relationship between two or more quantities. It is expressed as a comparison of two numbers, usually separated by a colon or a fraction bar. For example, the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in a class can be written as 2:3 or 2/3. Ratios are used in many real-life situations, from cooking recipes to financial planning.
Ratios can be simplified to their lowest terms and can be used to solve problems involving proportions. Proportions involve two ratios that are equal to each other, and they can be solved using cross-multiplication. Ratios can also be used to create scale drawings or models, where the ratio of the dimensions of the drawing or model represents the actual dimensions of the object being represented. Understanding ratios is important in many fields, such as engineering, finance, and science, where they are used to analyze data, make predictions, and solve problems.
