Calculation:
The ratio and rates are quite similar. A ratio is a relationship or comparison of two numbers. A ratio is used to compare two number with similar units.
For example, the ratio of boys and girls in a class. If there are 25 boys and 32 girls in a class then the ratio of boys to girls in that class is given by 2532. It is representing the comparison between the number of boys and girls in the class.
While the term rates is used to compare two numbers with different units.
For example, a person can walk 6 miles in 2 hour, then the rate of his walking will be give by 6 miles2 hours=3 miles per hour. So, it represents the rate at which the person can walk. Here it is comparing two numbers with different units.
