In our day-to-day life, we use the ratio in various ways.
Now, we will study how the ratio helps us to solve our real-life situations.
When two numbers are in the ratio of \(a\):\(b\), they can be represented as \(ax\) and \(bx\).
Because whatever the value we substitute as \(x\) in the expression which will be equal to the original form.
That is,
Consider a ratio of two number 4\(:\)14. Which can also be written as 4\(x\)\(:\)14\(x\).
We will see some application-oriented problems on ratios to understand this concept clearly.
