I'll just add by saying:

Ratio is a relative comparison between any two or more measurable amounts.

Percentage is a generic reference to any data expressed in percents (%). Like my predecessor said, "per-cent" is verbatim "by a hundred".
"Percent is the relative part out of hundred. The percentage of kindergartners that know that is not very high"
(If I was to gather all the kindergartners who know what a percent is, divide that number by the overall number of them, and crunch that number into a fraction with a 100 denominator, it wouldn't be very high.)

Proportion is like ratio, only it's not used about amounts, but about other measurement (sizes, distances, weight, etc..)

"The proportions of the 'ideal woman' figure are 90 cm girth at the thorax, 60 at the waist, and 90 at the loins)

A scale is an index, a gradient, used to measure and quantify different measurements.
