I’ve been studying the ratio of two things for a while now and it’s always been something that has been a recurring theme for me. I have been trying to write down some of my ideas about this topic, and here is how I came to it.
The ratio of two things is determined by how similar they are in nature. A ratio of one is one, a ratio of none is none. A ratio of equal to one is a ratio of 1, and a ratio of none is not a ratio at all.
This is not the first time Ive tried to write down my ideas about ratios. Ive been trying to explain what they mean to me in depth and find my way into the mathematical world, but Ive never been able to prove my theories, so Ive had to just go with them.
In the past Ive had a hard time explaining the ratios and proportions of things. Ive always found the subject so strange, it seemed as though it would be impossible to explain it in a way that would be understandable. This time Ive managed to come up with a way to explain what ratios are without using math.
There are a lot of ratios in the world. There are physical ratios, like the length of a stick or the width of a piece of paper, there are ratios in the world that are culturally specific, like the ratio of a man to his penis, or the ratio of a woman to her vagina. There are also ratios that are purely abstract, like the ratio of the square of a number to the square of its square root. And yes, we could go on and on.
The good news is that this process is not complicated. What it comes down to is that as humans, we are constantly adding dimensions to our world. When we add an inch to the length of a stick, we are saying that that inch is the length of a human stick. We also can add an inch to the width of a stick, and that inch is the width of a human stick.
In a nutshell, a ratio analysis is a method of analysis that takes a number and measures the “distance” from the number to the “center” of that number. The “distance” of a number to its “center” is called its “ratio” and is the value of that ratio that makes it the same size as those other numbers.
A ratio analysis is a very useful tool for identifying which number to add if we want to get a specific number, but it is most useful when we need to solve equations for some reason. A better method for solving the same equation would be to plug in a number and see if that number makes the same ratio as the other numbers in the equation.
We use a ratio analysis to make sure the ratios of numbers are equal. In the example, we have a ratio of 1.8 to 1. We add 8 to both numbers. This way we get the same ratio, but we don’t have to do the extra work of plugging in numbers and getting the same result. We can just say, “OK, we know we need to add 8, but we also want to get a value of 2.
As it turns out, a ratio of 1.8 to 1 is the same as a ratio of 1.8 to 1.5. We know that 1.8 to 1.5 is the same as 1.5 to 1. So, what does this tell us? We know that this ratio and the other ratios in the equation must be equal to each other. So, we can just take both numbers and plug them into this equation.
