I am an electrical engineer who is currently learning about optimization. From this post, they have shown how to linearize the product of two binary variables.

But in my case, I have a product $x \times y$ and a ratio $\frac{x}{y}$ where $x$ is binary and $y$ is a continuous non negative variable. Therefore, my question is how to linearize them ?
