Enter the chest measurement (in) and the waist measurement (in) into the Chest to Waist Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Chest to Waist Ratio. 

Chest to Waist Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Chest to Waist Ratio. 

CWR = C / W

  • Where CWR is the Chest to Waist Ratio ( )
  • C is the chest measurement (in) 
  • W is the waist measurement (in) 

How to Calculate Chest to Waist Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Chest to Waist Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the chest measurement (in). 
    • The chest measurement (in) is given as: 40.
  2. Next, determine the waist measurement (in). 
    • The waist measurement (in) is provided as: 32.
  3. Finally, calculate the Chest to Waist Ratio using the equation above: 

CWR = C / W

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CWR = 40 / 32 = 1.25


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

chest measurement (in) = 50

waist measurement (in) = 40

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.
