 # What does a 1:1 ratio mean?

In this question, we have to find what it means by $1$ ratio $1$, also written as $1:1$.

The basic concept behind this questionnaire is the knowledge and definition of ratios in mathematics.

Generically, a ratio is the comparison of two quantities that have the same unit and can be expressed with the help of $2$ variables. Let us suppose that $x$ and $y$ are those two variables and they should be an integer then we can write them in fraction form as follows:

$Ratio = \dfrac{x}{y}$

where

$variable \space x\ =\ first \space quantity$

$variable \space y\ =\ second\space quantity$

By definition $1:1$ ratio is actually one of the portion or quantity of the whole substance. For more clear understanding let us take an example of $10$ liters of orange juice in two containers.

Then we can write it as follows:

$Ratio \space of \space Orange \space juices = \dfrac{10}{10}$

$Ratio \space of \space Orange \space juices= \dfrac { 1 } { 1 }$

which will be equal or can be written as:

$Ratio \space of \space Orange \space juice = 1:1$

Or let us suppose that we have spice jars in our kitchen and in the set we have $100$ grams of salt and $100$ grams of pepper. Thus, we can write that the spices salt, and pepper are in a $1 :1$. We can mathematically express these quantities as written below:

$Quantity \space of \space salt \space in \space jar=100$

$Quantity \space of \space pepper \space in \space jar=100$

which will be equal or can be written as:

$Ratio \space of \space salt \space and \space pepper=\dfrac{100}{100}$

$Ratio \space of \space salt \space and \space pepper=1:1$

Now for the same example let us suppose that we have different quantities of spices in jars and in the given set we have $30$ grams of salt and $300$ grams of pepper. Thus, we can write that the spices salt and pepper are in a $1: 10$. We can mathematically express these quantities as written below:

$Quantity \space of \space salt \space in \space jar=30$

$Quantity \space of \space pepper \space in \space jar=300$

which will be equal or can be written as:

$Ratio \space of \space salt \space and \space pepper=\dfrac{30}{300}$

$Ratio \space of \space salt \space and \space pepper=1:10$

## Numerical Results

By definition, $1:1$ ratio is actually one of the portions or quantities of the whole substance when units are the same.

## Example

$1$ bottle has $6$ liters of pineapple juice while the other has $4$ liters of juice. Calculate the ratio of these bottles.

Given in the question statement, we have:

$1$ bottle has $6$ liters of pineapple juice.

Another bottle has $4$ liters of pineapple juice.

$Ratio \space of \space pineapple \space juice=\dfrac{6}{4}$

$Ratio \space of \space pineapple \space juice =\dfrac{3}{2}$

which will be equal or can be written as:

$Ratio \space of \space pineapple \space juice = 3: 2$
