**part**-

**part ratio**. • a

**ratio**that compares a selected number of

**parts**. to a number of other

**parts**in a

**whole**.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is an example of a part to part ratio?

**Part-to-part ratios** provide the relationship between two distinct groups. For **example**, the **ratio** of men to women is 3 to 5, or the solution contains 3 **parts** water for every 2 **parts** alcohol. You could write the **ratio** of B/A, but that is just the reciprocal of the **part-to-part ratio** already written.

Also, what do you mean by ratio? In mathematics, a **ratio** indicates how many times one number contains another. When two quantities are measured with the same unit, as is often the case, their **ratio** is a dimensionless number. A quotient of two quantities that are measured with different units is called a rate.

Keeping this in consideration, what is a part and whole?

**Part and Whole**. philosophical categories expressing the relationship of an aggregate of objects (or elements of a single object) to the connection that joins the objects together and endows the aggregate with a new set of integrative properties and regularities not inherent in the objects when separate.

What does a part to whole ratio mean?

**part**-**whole ratio**. • a **ratio** that compares a selected number of **parts**. to the total number of **parts** in a **whole**.
