Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0According with Wikipedia, a ratio is a relationship between two numbers of the same kind[1] (i.e., objects, persons, students, spoonfuls, units of whatever identical dimension), usually expressed as "a to b" or a:b, sometimes expressed arithmetically as a dimensionless quotient of the two[2] which explicitly indicates how many times the first number contains the second (not necessarily an integer).[3] So we can say that the ratio r =V1/V2 =240/960=1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or you can say V1 to V2 is 1/4. Likewise, you can state the same relationship as: V1:V2=1/4. Both express the same.
