## Convert numbers to ratio character vectors (two to one, one in three, five out of ten)

### Description

Convert numbers to ratio character vectors (two to one, one in three, five out of ten)

### Usage

```ratio(x, sep = "in", max_n = Inf, negative = "negative", ...)

nom_ratio(x, sep = "in", max_n = Inf, negative = "negative", ...)
```

### Arguments

 `x` A numeric vector `sep` A character vector separating components of the ratio. Defaults to `"in"`. `max_n` A numeric vector. When the absolute value of `x` is greater than `max_n`, `x` remains numeric instead of being converted to words. If `max_n` is negative, no `x`s will be converted to words. (This can be useful when `max_n` is passed by another function.) Defaults to `Inf`, which converts all `x`s to words. `negative` A character vector to append to negative numbers. Defaults to `"negative"`. `...` Arguments passed on to `fracture::frac_mat` `denom`If `denom` is not `NULL`, all fractions will have a denominator of `denom`. This will ignore all other arguments that affect the denominator. `base_10`If `TRUE`, all denominators will be a power of 10. `common_denom`If `TRUE`, all fractions will have the same denominator. If the least common denominator is greater than `max_denom`, `max_denom` is used. `max_denom`All denominators will be less than or equal to `max_denom`. If `base_10` is `TRUE`, the maximum denominator will be the largest power of 10 less than `max_denom`. A `max_denom` greater than the inverse square root of machine double epsilon will produce a warning because floating point rounding errors can occur when denominators grow too large.

### Details

`x` is converted to a fraction by `fracture::frac_mat()`.

### Value

A character vector of the same length as `x`

Other number names: `adverbial()`, `cardinal()`, `collective()`, `denominator()`, `numerator()`, `ordinal()`

### Examples

```paste0("Our team is outnumbered ", nom_ratio(10), ".")
paste0("The chances of winning are ", nom_ratio(1/1000000, sep = "in"), ".")

nom_ratio(c(1, 10, 100))
nom_ratio(c(0, 0.5, 1.5))
nom_ratio(c(0, 0.125, 0.625, 1), sep = "out of", common_denom = TRUE)
nom_ratio(5 / 10, sep = "in", base_10 = TRUE)
nom_ratio(6 / 25, sep = "in")
nom_ratio(6 / 25, sep = "out of", max_denom = 10)
```
