Ratios and Proportions Run Through

I know I spelled it "ration" in the video instead of "ratio." Plz forgive me.

**Also as a note:

-You can never have a ratio that is "x/0" because it is impossible to divide something by 0.

-Don't use irrational numbers in your ratios (numbers that have values after the decimal that continue infinitely and don't repeat)
-Use rational numbers (these include integers and a number that repeats after the decimal like 1/3 which is 0.333333~)
