...which is read, a is to b as с is to d; or thus, a : Ъ = с : d, which may be read as the other, or, **the ratio of a to b is equal to the ratio of** с to d. The second method of writing proportion is recommended as the more appropriate. 3 . A Couplet... | |

...other, compared together two and two, they are said to form a geometrical proportion. To express that **the ratio of A to B is equal to the ratio of C to** £>, we write the quantities thus, A : B :: C : D; and read, A is to B as C to D. The quantities which... | |
