Art Word of the Day: Ratio


Term: Ratio

Definition: The relationship between two or

more similar things in size, number, or degree. The numerator and denominator of every fraction function in this way. For example, "1/2" represents the ratio between one and two: one of two equal parts that together make a whole. 3/6 and 50/100 are similar ratios. Ratios are often expressed as numbers separated by a colon, and read as "is to." Analogies are often made using ratios. An example is 50:100 as 1:2. Ratio is essential to scale and proportion, and to the particular type of proportion known as the Golden Mean.(pr. RAY-shee-oh)

Art Word of the Day

Every day I make an attempt to add a little bit more art knowledge to the Internet, one word at a time. Realizing there aren’t many comprehensive and complete online art dictionaries, I set out on a mission to compile my own.

Download the Brave Browser and get $5 in the cryptocurrency BAT!!

The Brave Browser pays you in BAT (Basic Attention Token) to allow them to display their ads, which you can then use the BAT you earn to tip content creators or just exchange for another crypto. I'm making about $15 a month just from the ads, which are very non-intrusive, and all while simply using the Internet as I normally would. Brave comes with a built in script blocker and ad blocker so it's also very fast and very safe. I opened Firefox the other day and regretfully remembered what a monster it is on resources.

If you download and use Brave as your Internet browser using this link we both get $5 in BAT!!
