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

Regardless of how we write the ratio, we can clearly see that TikTok got ratioed and took an L here. 🥴 In simplest form, for every 1 TikTok like, there were about 6 Slushy likes.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.Check out our or explore our and sections to learn more about ratios and test your understanding.

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 “ratio” 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 they’re responding to.

In the image above, we can see that TikTok’s comment has 89.3K likes whereas Slushy’s comment has 579.5K likes.We can use this information to write the ratio of TikTok’s likes to Slushy’s likes as a fraction, with a colon, or in words:

Fraction | Colon | Words |

$579.5K89.3K ≈61 $ | $89.3K:579.5K≈1:6$ | $89.3Kto579.5K≈1to6$ |
