Ratio

The result of dividing one number or expression by another. Sometimes a ratio is written as a proportion, such as 3:2 (three to two). More often, though, ratios are simplified according to the standard rules for simplifying fractions or rational expressions.

Note: The word "rational" indicates that a ratio (in the second sense) is involved. The word rate also indicates a ratio is involved, as in instantaneous rate of change or average rate of change.
