# Ratios and Proportions

Welcome to our tutorial on Ratios and Proportions. This important lesson will unravel the integral relationship between ratios and proportions, bringing a new depth to your understanding of mathematical relationships.

Ratios tell us about the relative sizes of two or more values. Proportions, on the other hand, are statements that two ratios are equal. For example, if we know the ratio of oranges to apples in two separate fruit baskets is 3:2, and both baskets have the same proportion of oranges to apples, we have a proportion.

The understanding of proportions extends from the knowledge of ratios. A firm grasp on the concept of proportions allows us to solve a wide variety of problems, including those involving scales on maps, converting measurements, understanding probability, and much more.

Mastering proportions opens the door to understanding the broader world of algebra and other advanced mathematical concepts. It helps us make predictions and determine outcomes, critical skills for a variety of real-world applications, including cooking, construction, science, and more.
