...the laft definition, the ratio of A to C is compounded of the ratios of A to B, and of B to C ; but **the ratio of A to B is equal to the ratio of** B to C, becaufe A, B, C are continual proportionals ; therefore the ratio of A to C,by this definition,... | |

...other, they are said to be in proportion. Hence, proportion is an equality of ratios. To express that **the ratio of A to B is equal to the ratio of C to** D, we write the quantities thus : A : B : : C : D; and read, A is to B as C to D. The quantities which... | |
