  3. Task1:-
    A ratio is a comparison of two numbers. We generally separate the two numbers in the ratio with a colon (:). Suppose we want to write the ratio of 8 and 12.
    We can write this as 8:12 or as a fraction 8/12, and we say the ratio is eight to twelve.
    A proportion is an equation with a ratio on each side. It is a statement that two ratios are equal.
    3/4 = 6/8 is an example of a proportion.
