language to describe the relationship between quantities. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
6.RP.A.1

Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities
For example, "The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak." "For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes."
