In mathematics, a ratio indicates how many times one number contains another. In other term, it simply shows the relative sizes of two or more values.



  • It says how much of one thing there is compared to another thing
  • It is a comparison of two similar quantities obtained by dividing one quantity by the other


We use the word “to”–we say “the ratio of something to something else.” Ratios can be written in several different ways: as a fraction, using the word “to”, or with a colon.


  • To find an equal ratio, you can either multiply or divide each term in the ratio by the same number (but not zero).
    • For example, if we divide both terms in the ratio 3:6 by the number three, then we get the equal ratio, 1:2. 
  • To find out if two ratios are equal, you can divide the first number by the second for each ratio. If the quotients are equal, then the ratios are equal. 
    • Is the ratio 3:12 equal to the ratio 36:72? Divide both, and you discover that the quotients are not equal. Therefore, these two ratios are not equal.
