Enter the lengths of the first and second line segments into the calculator to determine the segment ratio. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Segment Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the segment ratio.

SR = L1 / L2

Variables:

- SR is the segment ratio
- L1 is the length of the first line segment
- L2 is the length of the second line segment

To calculate the segment ratio, divide the length of the first line segment (L1) by the length of the second line segment (L2). The result is the segment ratio (SR), which represents the proportion between the two line segments. If the segment ratio is equal to 1, the two line segments are of equal length. If the segment ratio is greater than 1, the first line segment is longer than the second. If the segment ratio is less than 1, the first line segment is shorter than the second.

## What is a Segment Ratio?

A segment ratio refers to the proportion between two line segments. It is often used in geometry and can be calculated by dividing the length of one line segment by the length of another. This ratio can provide information about the relative sizes of the two segments and can be used to determine if two segments are proportional to each other.

## How to Calculate Segment Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Segment Ratio.

- First, determine the length of the first line segment (L1).
- Next, determine the length of the second line segment (L2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SR = L1 / L2.
- Finally, calculate the Segment Ratio.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

length of the first line segment (L1) = 8

length of the second line segment (L2) = 5
