But wait! A half isn’t a ratio, it’s just a fraction of a sum while s ratio is a relationship between to quantities (or something)

If you and I shared pies in a ratio of 1:2 I'd have 1/3 and you'd have 2/3. Neither are 1/2. :shock:


I'd have half the number of pies that you'd have, that is a half :)

Actually I'd have half of your total....but good point!


Sorry, I was assuming you would take 2 of the 3 pies rather than me :)

1:2

Edit: guess based on the fact that models come in popular scales of 1:18 and 1:43 etc.

You can scale it down afterwards (i.e. 3:6 becomes 1:2) but I'm pretty sure that's correct.

Ratio is 'part to part'

Proportion is 'part to whole'

1/2 as a proportion.
