# Ratios in Percents

Welcome to our in-depth tutorials on Ratios in Percents. These lessons unravels the intricate relationship between ratios and percents, a foundational concept that extends the practical application of ratios.

A ratio is a comparison of two quantities. A percent, which is essentially a ratio with a denominator of 100, compares a number to 100. When we express ratios as percents, we essentially scale the ratio so that the second term is 100.

For example, a ratio of 3:5 can be converted to a percent by first writing it as a fraction (3/5), then multiplying by 100 to get 60%. This means that 3 is 60% of 5. By expressing ratios as percents, we gain another way to visualize and compare quantities.

Understanding how to convert ratios to percents and vice versa is a valuable skill in many areas of life, including shopping (discounts and sales tax), banking (interest rates), statistics (data interpretation), and more.
