Ratios happen when there are two or more quantities related. Ratios can have the same units or different units. The term Ratio can be used for same and different units as well. Ratios can be represented as words. When expressed as x parts to y parts units may be included. Ratios can be expressed using a colon. There is more than one correct way to express a ratio, all ways are interchangeable.
Special attention to the correct placement of units is key. Ratios are expressed as “for each” and “per”. Ratios have associated rates that relate to the unit ratio. The unit rate is a comparison and does not refer to the units. The unit rate shows the relationship to 1.
