    Gear ratios represent the number of times that the output shaft (drive axles) spin in relation to how fast the engine is spinning.

    Go read around in that link I gave you.

    Here's the main page for it:
    howstuffworks.com

    it'll explain everything, and so much more to you...a lot clearer than I can. (mainly because I gotta read up on it myself before hand)
