The second form of a ratio is the decimal. A decimal is a fraction where the indicated

division has been performed. For example, 1/4 would be 1 divided by 4, which is equal to .25.

Note the fraction 1 to 4 is the same as the decimal .25 to 1. However, when expressing a

decimal, the "to 1" is understood and left off. So the ratio would be stated as the decimal .25.
