The scale on a map or blueprint is a ratio. Ingredients sometimes need to be mixed using ratios such as the ratio of water to cement mix when making cement.

The scale factor.

A ratio is expressed as the relationship of whole numbers or decimals. The numbers can determine percentages, scales, parts of a solution, or output per input in gears. The ratio is simply a multiple and can be changed to other ratios just as fractions are changed, by multiplication of both sides.Some examples of ratios are:If you need to mix 1 part whitewash with 2 parts water, the ratio is 2:1If a gearbox input shaft makes 1 revolution causing the output to make 2.6 revolutions, the ratio is 1:2.6If a drawing of a house is drawn on paper, it is drawn much smaller but to scale with the real house dimensions. If the drawing is 120 times smaller than the house, then the scale is 1:120If 26 out of every 100 adults smoke cigarettes, then the ratio is 26:100In the final two examples, you can express the ratio scale as a fraction (1/120th scale) and the percentage of smokers as 26% (26 percent).To simplify a ratio, divide both sides by the smaller number. E.g. the ratio of 300 to 10 (300:10) is 30 to 1, and the ratio of 10:20 equals the ratio 1:2 (1/2).

You have to divide 10 and 14 by the same number to get your ratio. Example: 10 divided by 2= 5 & 14 divided by 2=7 so your ratio would be 5/7 or 5 to 7

Ratios show the information of the side lengths scale factors show the information of how they are related

A representative scale refers to the ratio of a distance on a map to the corresponding distance on the Earth's surface. It helps users understand the relationship between distances on a map and in reality. It is often depicted as a scale bar or ratio.
