Example: Finding Ratio (Based on Ages)
Explanation:
In mathematics, a ratio is a relationship between two
numbers of the same kind (i.e., objects, persons, students, spoonfuls, units of
whatever identical dimension), usually expressed as "a to b" or a:b, sometimes expressed
arithmetically as a dimensionless quotient of the two which explicitly indicates how
many times the first number contains the second (not necessarily an integer).
Notation
and terminology

The numbers A and B are sometimes called terms with A being the antecedent and B being the consequent.
