How I understand it, intervals are continuous. Like, nos. with intervals of 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25

Whereas ratio is like...let's say in scaling, 3:5. It means that say 3cm in your drawing is 5m iRL.
Or say, the ratio of the no. of students to the no. of computers. example, 3:1. There are 3 students for every 1 computer.

Claro ba?

Here are definitions from Encarta Dictionary:
interval: a period of time bet. one event and the next
: the distance between one thing and another
Ratio: a proportional relationship bet. 2 diff. nos. or qtys.
:a quotient of two nos. or expressions arrived at by dividing one by the other.
