Lets see, the ratio of cat to dog food is 3:4 and the price per ounce of dog food is $.5 which is 2 cents less than the cat food. So I will get 2 things of cat food and three things of dog food.
I was talking ratios and proportions. A ratio is comparing one thing to another. For example, the ratio of people wearing hats to people without one is 1:1. Proportions is finding out an amount per something. For example, the amount of money you spend per ounce of dog food in a bag could be $.3 per ounce.
Math Geeks these days. What o Earth were you talking about.
