## Proportion

**Proportion** is a correlation of size. It is the relative size of a figure on a given axis in relation to the other axis of the figure. For example, a rectangle that is 6” wide and 12” tall could be described generically as “taller than wide” or specifically as a “1 to 2 proportion.” Proportion can also describe one figure in relation to another figure: “twice as long” or “half as wide.”
