A mathematical comparison between two different numbers is known as ‘proportions’. In general, it is referred to as the part, number, or share considered in comparative relation to a whole. When two ratios are equal or equivalent, they are meant to be in proportion. They are generally denoted using the symbol, ‘=’ or ‘::’. For instance, the time taken by a car to cover 60 km per hour is equal to the time taken by it to cover the distance of 300 km for 5 hours. So, 60 km / hr = 300 km / 5hr.

  • Proportion is classified into two types. They are: inverse proportions and direct proportions. 
  • Direct Proportion: The direct relationship between two different quantities is known as direct proportion. For example, if the quantity of A increases, the quantity of B also increases. 
  • Inverse Proportion: The inverse relationship between two different quantities is known as inverse proportion. For example, if the quantity of A increases, the quantity of B decreases. 


 

   Proportion = a : b :: c : d = a/b = c/d 


 

 

Let us look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about proportion. 


 

Q. Amrita runs 4 miles in 40 minutes. At this rate, how far can amrita run in 60 minutes? 


 

Solution: 

Here, 

Let x be the number of miles, she can run in 40 minutes. 


 

It is given that running 4 miles in 40 minutes is the same as running x miles in 60 minutes. 


 

Equation =  4 / 40 = x / 60&...
