# 6th Class Chapter No 12 - Ratio And proportion in Maths for CBSE NCERT

A ratio is a way to compare two quantities by using division as in miles per hour where we compare miles and hours. A ratio can be written in three different ways and all are read as "the ratio of x to y" A proportion on the other hand is an equation that says that two ratios are equivalent. For instance if one package of cookie mix results in 20 cookies than that would be the same as to say that two packages will result in 40 cookies.
