Enter the first measurement (in) and the second measurement (in) into the Measurement Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Measurement Ratio. 

Measurement Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Measurement Ratio. 

MR = M1 / M2
  • Where MR is the Measurement Ratio
  • M1 is the first measurement (in) 
  • M2 is the second measurement (in) 

To calculate the measurement ratio, divide the first measurement by the second measurement.

How to Calculate Measurement Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Measurement Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the first measurement (in).
    • The first measurement (in) is given as: 3.
  2. Next, determine the second measurement (in).
    • The second measurement (in) is provided as: 6.
  3. Finally, calculate the Measurement Ratio using the equation above: 

MR = M1 / M2

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

MR = 3 /6 = .50

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

first measurement (in) = 7

second measurement (in) = 8

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

MR = M1 / M2 = ?
