A titration with potassium permanganate

A titration with potassium permanganate is used for the oxalic acid
5H2C2O4+2Mn)4- +6H+ ------->10CO2+2Mn2+8H2O
calculate the molarity of an oxalic acid solution requiring 23.2 ml of 0.127 M permanganate for a 25.O ml portion of solution

Is this set up as a ratio?
If so, How do I set it up?
