Simply put, your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) is how much money a lender is willing to loan you based on what you make on an annual basis. It's a financial metric used by lenders to assess your ability as a borrower to pay back monthly payments. Your debt-to-income ratio is calculated by dividing the total monthly debt payments by your gross monthly income.

For example, let's say your car payment is $600 and your credit cards are $1,400. Your debt is $2,000. Then, let's say your income is $6,000.

DTI Ratio = ($2,000 / $6,000) * 100% = 33.33% 

This means your debt-to-income ratio is 33.33%, meaning 33.33% of your gross monthly income is being used to pay off debts. Lenders usually have maximum DTI ratio limits that they'll accept before approving a mortgage loan.
