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