What is Ratio?
A ratio is a relationship between two numbers by division of the same kind. The ration of a to b is written as a : b = a / b. In ratio a : b, we can say that a as the first term or antecedent and b the second term or consequent.

The ratio 4 : 9 can be represented as 4 / 9. So, Antecedent = 4 and Consequent = 9.

Rule of ratio
In ratio multiplication or division of each an every term of a ratio by the same non-zero number does not affect the ratio.


Different type of ratio problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential topic in banking exam. Under below given some more example for your better practice.

Anything we learn in our school days was basics and that is well enough for passing our school exams. Now the time has come to learn for our competitive exams. For this we need our basics but also we have to learn something new. That’s where shortcut tricks and formula are comes into action.

What is Proportion?
The idea of proportions is that two ratios are like equal.

If a : b = c : d, then we can write a : b : : c : d
Here, a and d is called extremes AND b and c is called mean terms.

3 / 15 = 1 / 5

Proportion of quantities
The four quantities like a, b, c, d are proportion, then we can express it as
a : b = c : d
Then, a : b : : c : d  <–> ( a x d ) = ( b x c )
Product of means = Product of extremes.

If there is given three quantities like a, d, c of same like, then we can say it’s proportion are continued.
a : d = d : c
Here d is called mean term AND a and c are called extremes.
