Ratios are an excellent way of expressing paired and grouped values but they are not always practical when completing calculations. The following calculators allow you to convert ratios to other formats and other formats to ratios.

- Ratio Converter
- Percentage to Ratio Calculator
- Ratio to Percentage Calculator
- Ratio to Fraction Calculator
- Fraction to Ratio Calculator
- Ratio to Decimal Calculator
- Decimal to Ratio Calculator
- Values to Ratio Calculator

These calculators are designed to test your mental arithmetic and provide a bit or fun. each ratio test has a leader board so you can see if you can become the number 1 in the world for ratio calculations. The tests include ratios, fractions and percentages, this is because ratios can be expressed as fractions and percentages and it is worth training your brain to recognise and compare those values, the more you practice, the more you will become familiar with the relative values when comparing ratio, fraction and percentage values.

A ratio is a mathematical expression that represents the relationship between two numbers, indicating how many times one value is contained within the other. It can be written in several forms such as a to b, a:b, or a/b, where 'a'and 'b'are the quantities being compared.

Ratios can be classified into different types based on the values being compared:

**Part-to-Part Ratio:**Compares different parts of a group to each other. For example, the ratio of cats to dogs.**Part-to-Whole Ratio:**Compares a part of a group to the whole group. For example, the ratio of cats to the total number of pets.**Equivalent Ratios:**Ratios that represent the same relationship. For example, 2:4 is equivalent to 3:6.

Basic operations can be performed with ratios:

**Simplifying Ratios:**Ratios should be simplified to their lowest terms by dividing both parts of the ratio by their greatest common divisor (GCD).**Finding Equivalent Ratios:**Multiply or divide both parts of the ratio by the same number.**Comparing Ratios:**Convert the ratios to have the same denominator, or convert them to fractions and compare.

Explore our range of ratio calculators to enhance your understanding and make calculations seamless:

**Ratio Simplifier:**Easily simplify ratios to their lowest terms.**Equivalent Ratio Finder:**Quickly find equivalent ratios.**Ratio Comparison Calculator:**Compare two ratios to find which is greater, or if they are equal.**Ratio to Fraction Converter:**Convert a ratio to a fraction.

Ratios are not just a mathematical concept, but are used in real-life applications:

**Cooking:**Ratios are used to measure ingredients, such as the ratio of water to flour in a recipe.**Finance:**Ratios like return on investment (ROI) are critical in financial analysis.**Map Reading:**Ratios are used in scales on maps and blueprints to represent distances.
