not exactly division. Say the ratio of male to female is 1.2 : 1 in China. I am not trying to divide the number of male by the number of female; I am using a colon (:), not a forward slash (/), to express a ratio. What I am trying is to compare the male population to the female. Compare is the key. The second number is, in majority of the cases, the number one, giving the illusion of a division. But 3 : 2 or 6:5 is a ratio too.

a ratio is when you compare two or more objects using percentages or fractions.

Division is used to simplify the ratio (reduce it, put it into simplest terms). This gives you a direct (and usually small) perspective of the ratio, so can visualize it easier and understand it better.
