a unit in measuring distances; as, he advanced fifty

Note: Ordinarily the pace is estimated at two and one half
linear feet; but in measuring distances be stepping,
the pace is extended to three feet (one yard) or to
three and three tenths feet (one fifth of a rod). The
regulation marching pace in the English and United
States armies is thirty inches for quick time, and
thirty-six inches for double time. The Roman pace
(passus) was from the heel of one foot to the heel of

+ portio part or share. See Portion.]
1. The relation or adaptation of one portion to another, or
to the whole, as respect magnitude, quantity, or degree;
comparative relation; ratio; as, the proportion of the
parts of a building, or of the body.

Documents are authentic and facts are true precisely
in proportion to the support which they afford to

2. Harmonic relation between parts, or between different

(a) The equality or similarity of ratios, especially of
geometrical ratios; or a relation among quantities
such that the quotient of the first divided by the
second is equal to that of the third divided by the
fourth; -- called also geometrical proportion, in
distinction from arithmetical proportion, or that in
which the difference of the first and second is equal
to the difference of the third and fourth.
Note: Proportion in the mathematical sense differs from
ratio. Ratio is the relation of two quantities of the
same kind, as the ratio of 5 to 10, or the ratio of 8
to 16. Proportion is the sameness or likeness of two
such relations. Thus, 5 to 10 as 8 to 16; that is, 5
bears the same relation to 10 as 8 does to 16. Hence,
such numbers are said to be in proportion. Proportion
is expressed by symbols thus: a:b::c:d, or a:b = c:d,
or a/b = c/d.
(b) The rule of three, in arithmetic, in which the three
given terms, together with the one sought, are
Continued proportion, Inverse proportion, etc. See under
Continued, Inverse, etc.
Harmonical, or Musical, proportion, a relation of three
or four quantities, such that the first is to the last as
the difference between the first two is to the difference
between the last two; thus, 2, 3, 6, are in harmonical
proportion; for 2 is to 6 as 1 to 3. Thus, 24, 16, 12, 9,
are harmonical, for 24:9::8:3.
In proportion, according as; to the degree that. ``In
proportion as they are metaphysically true, they are
morally and politically false.' --Burke. geometrical squareQuadrat Quad"rat, n. [F. quadrat, cadrat. See Quadrate.]
1. (Print.) A block of type metal lower than the letters, --
used in spacing and in blank lines. [Abbrev. quad.]
2. An old instrument used for taking altitudes; -- called
also geometrical square, and line of shadows.

Ratio of a geometrical progressionRatio Ra"ti*o, n. [L., fr. reri, ratus, to reckon, believe,
think, judge. See Reason.]
1. (Math.) The relation which one quantity or magnitude has
to another of the same kind. It is expressed by the
quotient of the division of the first by the second; thus,
the ratio of 3 to 6 is expressed by 3/6 or 1/2; of a to b
by a/b; or (less commonly) the second is made the
dividend; as, a:b = b/a.
Note: Some writers consider ratio as the quotient itself,
making ratio equivalent to a number. The term ratio is
also sometimes applied to the difference of two
quantities as well as to their quotient, in which case
the former is called arithmetical ratio, the latter,
geometrical ratio. The name ratio is sometimes given to
the rule of three in arithmetic. See under Rule.
2. Hence, fixed relation of number, quantity, or degree;
rate; proportion; as, the ratio of representation in
Compound ratio, Duplicate ratio, Inverse ratio, etc.
See under Compound, Duplicate, etc.
