Ratio And Proportion

The ratio is a comparison of two quantities, and proportion is an equality of two ratios.

Here’s a short story to help you understand more about Ratio & Proportions.

In a little village, two friends, Mike and Tom, loved baking delicious cakes. One day, they decided to share their cake recipe with the whole village. But they needed to make sure they used the right proportions of ingredients.

Mike had a secret recipe that used a special ratio of flour to sugar: 2 cups of flour to 1 cup of sugar. Tom wanted to make half the recipe, so they used proportion to adjust the ingredients.

They found that 1 cup of flour needed 1/2 cup of sugar. With this proportion, they could make a smaller version of the cake while keeping the same delicious taste.
