discrete proportion definition

  • adjective:
    • proportion where in fact the ratio of way varies from that either couplet; because, 3:6::8:16, 3 bearing exactly the same percentage to 6 as 8 does to 16. But 3 is certainly not to 6 as 6 to 8. It is thus against continued or continuous proportion; as, 3:6::12:24.
