Enter the value of the first unit and the value of the second unit into the Simple Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Simple Ratio.

## Simple Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Simple Ratio.

SR = V1 / V2

• Where SR is the Simple Ratio (V1:1)
• V1 is the value of the first unit
• V2 is the value of the second unit

## How to Calculate Simple Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Simple Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the value of the first unit.
• The value of the first unit is given as: 4.
2. Next, determine the value of the second unit.
• The value of the second unit is provided as: 5.
3. Finally, calculate the Simple Ratio using the equation above:

SR = V1 / V2

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

SR = 4 / 5 = .8 : 1

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

value of the first unit = 8

value of the second unit = 9
