`<ratio>`

Include the standard header <ratio> to define constants and templates that are used to store and manipulate rational numbers at compile time.

## Syntax

```
#include <ratio>
```

### ratio Template

```
template<std::intmax_t Numerator, std::intmax_t Denominator = 1>
struct ratio // holds the ratio of Numerator to Denominator
{
static constexpr std::intmax_t num;
static constexpr std::intmax_t den;
typedef ratio<num, den> type;
}
```

The template `ratio`

defines the static constants `num`

and `den`

such that `num`

/ `den`

== Numerator / Denominator and `num`

and `den`

have no common factors. `num`

/ `den`

is the value that is represented by the class template. Therefore, `type`

designates the instantiation `ratio<num, den>`

.

### Specializations

<ratio> also defines specializations of `ratio`

that have the following form.

`template <class R1, class R2> struct ratio_specialization`

Each specialization takes two template parameters that must also be specializations of `ratio`

. The value of `type`

is determined by an associated logical operation.

Name | `type` Value |
---|---|

`ratio_add` |
`R1 + R2` |

`ratio_divide` |
`R1 / R2` |

`ratio_equal` |
`R1 == R2` |

`ratio_greater` |
`R1 > R2` |

`ratio_greater_equal` |
`R1 >= R2` |

`ratio_less` |
`R1 < R2` |

`ratio_less_equal` |
`R1 <= R2` |

`ratio_multiply` |
`R1 * R2` |

`ratio_not_equal` |
`!(R1 == R2)` |

`ratio_subtract` |
`R1 - R2` |

### typedefs

For convenience, the header defines ratios for the standard SI prefixes:

```
typedef ratio<1, 1000000000000000000> atto;
typedef ratio<1, 1000000000000000> femto;
typedef ratio<1, 1000000000000> pico;
typedef ratio<1, 1000000000> nano;
typedef ratio<1, 1000000> micro;
typedef ratio<1, 1000> milli;
typedef ratio<1, 100> centi;
typedef ratio<1, 10> deci;
typedef ratio<10, 1> deca;
typedef ratio<100, 1> hecto;
typedef ratio<1000, 1> kilo;
typedef ratio<1000000, 1> mega;
typedef ratio<1000000000, 1> giga;
typedef ratio<1000000000000, 1> tera;
typedef ratio<1000000000000000, 1> peta;
typedef ratio<1000000000000000000, 1> exa;
```
