## Shoulder to Waist Ratio Formula

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

SWR = S / W

- Where SWR is the Shoulder to Waist Ratio ( )
- S is the shoulder measurement (in)
- W is the waist measurement (in)

To calculate a shoulder to waist ratio, divide the shoulder measurement by the waist measurement.

## How to Calculate Shoulder to Waist Ratio?

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

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the shoulder measurement (in).
- The shoulder measurement (in) is given as: 38.

- Next, determine the waist measurement (in).
- The waist measurement (in) is provided as: 30.

- Finally, calculate the Shoulder to Waist Ratio using the equation above:

SWR = S / W

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

SWR = 38 / 30 = 1.266

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

shoulder measurement (in) = 40

waist measurement (in) = 32
