Summary

A ratio is a comparison of two quantities by division.

Ratios are often expressed as fractions in the simplest form.

A ratio has no unit.

The two quantities of a ratio should be in the same unit.

Order of the terms in a ratio cannot be reversed.

To get an equivalent ratio, multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number.

When two ratios are equal, they are said to be in proportion.

The proportionality law states that the product of the extremes is equal to the product of the means.

Finding the value of required number of units by knowing the value of one unit is known as unitary method.
