**Chorus:**When you got two fractions that are the same but written differently, call it another name it’s the same but now you’ve got a ratio so amped about this I made the ratio flow percent is also part of this scene and decimal too, know what I mean don’t get excited, I’ll explain exactly you’ll understand man as a matter of factly when you got part of a whole you only got a fraction

gonna show you how you can take action

can express it as something else don’t you know

call it a percent, ok here we go

take the top number that you call the numerator

then the bottom number you call the denominator

divide the top by the bottom then multiply

by 100, you got percent, gonna tell you why

a percent is the part of a whole

whole being 100, now we’re on a roll

just like a fraction a percent is a part

it’s also called a ratio, we’re only at the start

a ratio and a fraction are the same thing

but you gotta know somethin’ I swear on my bling

the line in a fraction is called “divided by”

it also means “is to”, gonna tell you why

**Chorus**ratios compare two similar fractions

don’t be confused, just take some action

realize one half is the same as two fourths

because 1 is to 2 as 2 is to 4 the word “as” can also mean “equals”

if you memorize this I’ll let you see the sequel

two thirds is the same as ten fifteenths

because 2 is to 3 as 10 is to 15

ratios aren’t hard, I ain’t lying

all you do is convert by multiplying

top and the bottom by the same number

to get a ratio of the fraction, you ain’t any dumber

sometimes you need to think a bit more

and find a missing number that you’re looking for

need to set up two similar fractions the correct way

into ratios, man you better not play

**Chorus**the missing number can be found by cross-multiplying

and doing some algebra, I told you I’m not lying

you can find the missing number in a snap

if you think of Algebro, he always got your back fraction can be written as a decimal level of doubt is infinitesimal remember that the line means divide gotta do long division, can’t let you slide already rapped this in another track not gonna repeat it, don’t wanna sound wack you’re smart enough now to get it on your own you can solve any problem man now you’re in a zone

**Chorus**
