How do you define Ratio?
Let us see what does the term ratio mean.
Answer: The term ratio means the quantitative relation between the two numbers showing how many times one value contains or is contained within the other.
The ratio gives a measure of how many times a number is in comparison to another number.
If a and b are the two numbers then the term ratio a to b means a/b
Ratio is represented as a: b (read as a to b ) which is nothing but the fraction a/b.
Therefore, The term ratio means the relationship between two values that expresses how much bigger one is than the other.
