A ratio is a comparison of two quantities. It tells us how much of one thing there is compared to another thing.

Ratios can be used in a bunch of different settings, including social media. Depending on how much you use TikTok, you may have actually seen โ€œratioโ€ in the comments section.

The term is often used to start a challenge in which a user tries to get more likes on their comment than the original post or comment theyโ€™re responding to.

In the image above, we can see that TikTokโ€™s comment has 89.3K likes whereas Slushyโ€™s comment has 579.5K likes.

We can use this information to write the ratio of TikTokโ€™s likes to Slushyโ€™s likes as a fraction, with a colon, or in words:

Regardless of how we write the ratio, we can clearly see that TikTok got ratioed and took an L here. ๐Ÿฅด In simplest form, for every 1 TikTok like, there were about 6 Slushy likes.

Simplest Form

The simplest form of a ratio is when there are no more numbers (other than 1) that both sides of the ratio can be evenly divided by.
