How are the following two commands related?

Trying to get through UNIX class that I mostly missed due to illness. If anyone can help me with this question I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

How are the following two commands related?

1s -1R /proc

ps ax

these two commands related in sense that /proc filesystem is virtual representation of processes.
ps command allows you to get information in a form of processes and /proc virtual filesystem provides much the same information but in form of filesystem.
There are commands in a system that require access to process statistics as to files and /proc filesystem provides that. Again, if you have question of this sort get "UNIX Essentials and UNIX Core" DVD it explains all that.
