How, do you increase something by a ratio, for example, 25 in the ratio of 6:1?

Increasing something by a ratio means to increase it by a scalar

 

put it like this (using your example)

 

\({6 \over1} = {x \over25}\)

 

Now, cross multiply

 

6*25=1*x

 

x=25*6

 

x=150

 

Hope this helped :)
