Ratio is a comparison of the size of two quantities from one subject to another. It is used in mathematics, science and economics.

The most common ways we use ratio are as measurements; for example, the ratio between side lengths of a rectangle or between the age at which someone enters high school and college. Ratio can also be used to compare if two quantities are equal or unequal, to find out how much one quantity is greater than another, and to find out if something is equivalent in value to something else.
