Size relationship of one part to another.
the relationship in size of one component of a work of art to another
A special type of ratio expressing a relationship between the part and the whole. The numerator represents a portion of the total; the denominator is the total. For example, five male health workers out of a total of 15 health workers make a proportion.
Type of ratio in which the numerator is included in the denominator. A proportion is calculated by dividing the number of people with a common characteristic at a given time period by the total population that shares the same event in the same time period.
(n) The comparative relation, or ratio, between dimensions of a feature or object.
Size relationships between parts of a whole, or between two or more objects perceived as a unit.
Sizing objects so that they look like they belong together.
an equation showing two ratios are equal. For example, is a proportion. It can be written 3:4 = 5:x.
The relationship between each element's size and shape.
the agreeable relation of parts within a whole
How parts of a work relate to each other and to the whole
Consistent ratio relations between the parts of two different elements [e.g. if a page is 10 x 8 inches, then a thumbnail representing it would be 5 x 4 inches, or 2.5 x 2 inches or 1.25 x 1 inches

The balanced relationship of parts of a building, landscape, and structures to each other and to the whole.
the comparative relation between things; any part or portion in relation to the whole
A proportion is an equality of two quotients (or ratios), usually involving an unknown to be solved. Example: = 5 : 4 or = Hence: 5x = 24 x = 4.
The size relationship of parts to a whole and to one another.
The term used in examining the overall symmetry of a gemstone.

An equality between two ratios.
Design concept expressing an element's relationship of length to width.
A statement that two ratios are equal. 2/5 = 12/30
The proportions of a diamond are very important, so that the maximum amount of light be reflected off and out of a stone. Proportion is the relationship between the angles of the facets of the crown and pavilion.
A portion of a population in relation to another portion of the population or to the population as a whole. Proportions are a special type of ratio in which the denominator always includes the numerator. (See also ratio.)
The size of one shape or form in relation to another.
Written as two equal ratios. For example, 5 is to 4 as 10 is to 8, or 5/4 = 10/8.

The relationship in scale and symmetry of one part to the whole; also refers to the relative sizes of compositional elements and their optimal positions for good design.
Architectural practice has often used proportional systems to generate or constrain the forms considered suitable for inclusion in a building. In almost every building tradition there is a system of mathematical relations which govern the relationships between aspects of the design. These systems of proportion are often quite simple; whole number ratios or easily constructed geometric shapes (such as the vesica piscis or the golden ratio).
