- S: (n) proportion, ratio (the relation between things (or parts of things) with respect to their comparative quantity, magnitude, or degree) "an inordinate proportion of the book is given over to quotations"; "a dry martini has a large proportion of gin"
- A ratio is a comparison of two numbers. We generally separate the two numbers in the ratio with a colon (:). Suppose we want to write the ratio of 8 and 12. We can write this as 8:12 or as a fraction 8/12, and we say the ratio is eight to twelve.
