Martin-Gay, Prealgebra & Introductory Algebra, 3ed 33 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. A ratio is the quotient of two quantities. Writing Ratios as Fractions For example, a percent can be thought of as a ratio, since it is the quotient of a number and 100. 53% = or the ratio of 53 to 100

If any three numbers are known, the fourth number can be found by solving the proportion. To solve use cross products. a b c d a b c d = Multiply both sides by the LCD, bd Simplify ad = bc cross product ad bc These are called cross products.
