In the box below, you can enter a number in either box and we will calculate the other number to keep the ratio of 50 to 1. In other words, we will calculate the corresponding equivalent ratio of 50:1 for you.
To calculate the left side of the ratio, our calculator multiplies the right side by 50 and then divides the product by 1. To calculate the right side of the ratio, our calculator multiplies the left side by 1 and then divides the product by 50. Answers are rounded to two decimals if necessary.
Below is a list of equivalent ratios of 50:1 that we created using our 50:1 ratio calculator above.
We have also created a pie chart for you to put 50:1 ratio in perspective. To do so, we divided a pie into 51 pieces and then colored 50 pieces green and 1 pieces blue. The pie will look exactly the same using any equivalent ratio of 50:1.
The green part of the pie covers 98.04% and the blue part covers 1.96%. To calculate the percentages, we divided each side of the ratio by its total and then multiplied by 100, like this:
(50 / 51)×100 ≈ 98.04
(1 / 51)×100 ≈ 1.96
In fractional terms, 50/1 of the pie above is colored in green. This means that the ratio of 50 to 1 or 50:1 can also be expressed as a fraction, where the 50 to the left of the colon is the numerator and the 1 to the right of the colon is the denominator:
50:1 = 50/1
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 50 to 1, the width is 50 and the height is 1. Below is a picture of what a rectangle with a ratio of 50:1 looks like.
Since the simplest form of the fraction 50/1 is 50/1, the simplest form of the ratio 50:1 is also 50:1.
