Use cross product to determine if the two ratios form a proportion. Here we can see that 2/16 and 5/40 are proportions since their cross products are equal. Percent means hundredths or per hundred and is written with the symbol, %. Percent is a ratio were we compare numbers to 100 which means that 1% is 1/100.

## What number has to be added to each term of 3 ratio 5 to make the ratio 5 ratio 6?

Therefore, (3 + x) / (5 + x) = 5/6. On solving, we get, (3 + x) 6 = 5 (5 + x). This implies, 18 + 6x = 25 + 5x, => 6x – 5x = 25 – 18. Therefore, number to be added = x = 7.
