A ratio is a comparison between two quantities.

Ratio is the quantitative relation between two different amounts

showing the number of times one value is contained within the

other. To solve, you have to make each side of the ration equal,

like an even scale.

Adding further it is the value of relation between to numerical

or non-numerical figures, for e.g 10:12 is, 10 upon 12

### What number is the golden ratio?

The golden ratio, or golden mean, or phi, is about
1.618033989.
The golden ratio is the ratio of two quantities such that the
ratio of the sum to the larger is the same as the ratio of the
larger to the smaller.
If the two quantities are a and b, their ratio is golden if a
> b and (a+b)/a = a/b.
This ratio is known as phi, with a value of about 1.618033989.
Exactly, the ratio is (1 + square root(5))/2.

### How do you find the ratio between two circles when the diameters are given?

If you mean ratio then I don't quite understand the question..
but if you mean RADIUS Then you take the diameter and divide it by
two.
==============================================
There's no such thing as the ratio of circles. You can find the
ratio of their diameters,
the ratio of their radiussesses, and the ratio of their
areas.
-- The ratio of their diameters is: One diameter divided by the
other one.
-- The ratio of their radiusses is the same number as the ratio
of their diameters.
-- The ratio of their areas is the square of that same
number.
