As long as you have enough values, you can proportionalize any ratio - 2:3 is proportional to 4:6 - to find a missing number Ex: (2:3 = X:66) multiply the bottom number of the first ratio by the top number of the 2nd ratio (3 x X=3X) and then, likewise, multiply the top number of the first ratio to the bottom number of the 2nd (66 x 2 = 132) . Now you have 3x=132. Next divide (132/3 = 44).

As long as you have a ratio to compare, you can always proportionalize with your own curius values.
