In the box below, you can enter a number in either box and we will calculate the other number to keep the ratio of 4 to 6. In other words, we will calculate the corresponding equivalent ratio of 4:6 for you.
To calculate the left side of the ratio, our calculator multiplies the right side by 4 and then divides the product by 6. To calculate the right side of the ratio, our calculator multiplies the left side by 6 and then divides the product by 4. Answers are rounded to two decimals if necessary.
Below is a list of equivalent ratios of 4:6 that we created using our 4:6 ratio calculator above.
We have also created a pie chart for you to put 4:6 ratio in perspective. To do so, we divided a pie into 10 pieces and then colored 4 pieces green and 6 pieces blue. The pie will look exactly the same using any equivalent ratio of 4:6.
The green part of the pie covers 40% and the blue part covers 60%. To calculate the percentages, we divided each side of the ratio by its total and then multiplied by 100, like this:
(4 / 10)×100 = 40
(6 / 10)×100 = 60
In fractional terms, 4/6 of the pie above is colored in green. This means that the ratio of 4 to 6 or 4:6 can also be expressed as a fraction, where the 4 to the left of the colon is the numerator and the 6 to the right of the colon is the denominator:
4:6 = 4/6
Ratio is often used when defining rectangles in width:height format. Width and height can be feet, inches, centimeters, or any other kind of length. With a ratio of 4 to 6, the width is 4 and the height is 6. Below is a picture of what a rectangle with a ratio of 4:6 looks like.
Since the simplest form of the fraction 4/6 is 2/3, the simplest form of the ratio 4:6 is also 2:3.
