Enter the hip measurement (in) and the total waist measurement (in) into the Hip to Waist Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Hip to Waist Ratio.

## Hip to Waist Ratio Formula

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

HWR = H / W
• Where HWR is the Hip to Waist Ratio (hip:1(waist))
• H is the hip measurement (in)
• W is the total waist measurement (in)

To calculate the hip-to-waist ratio, divide the hip measurement by the waist measurement.

## How to Calculate Hip to Waist Ratio?

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

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the hip measurement (in).
• The hip measurement (in) is given as: 28.
2. Next, determine the total waist measurement (in).
• The total waist measurement (in) is provided as: 32.
3. Finally, calculate the Hip to Waist Ratio using the equation above:

HWR = H / W

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

HWR = 28 / 32 = .875 (hip:1(waist))

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

hip measurement (in) = 26

total waist measurement (in) = 30
