# Advanced Ratio Topics: Ratios in Algebra

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on ratios in algebra. Algebra and ratios often intermingle in mathematics to solve a wide variety of problems, from simple equations to complex real-world situations.

Ratios in algebra often take the form of equations. These equations can represent proportions, where two ratios are equal to each other. Understanding how to manipulate these equations is key to solving many algebraic problems.

For example, suppose we have a proportion a/b = c/d. With algebra, we can cross-multiply to solve for any missing values or to simplify the proportion.

Algebra also allows us to use ratios to solve problems involving scaling or similar figures, and in various branches of mathematics such as trigonometry and calculus.
