Definition

Ratio: the relation of one part to another or to a whole (a comparison between two numbers equal to one divided by the other).

Hawaiian Translation: Lākiō

Example

In this drawing there is one boy and 3 girls, so we could write the ratio in many different ways:

- 1 : 3 - for every one boy there are three girls;

- ¼ are boys and ¾ are girls

- 0.25 are boys (by dividing 1 by 4)

- 25% are boys (0.25 as a percentage)
