## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello! I am trying to calculate the value of items in an online game i play. I was wondering what the best way to do this was. I was thinking of take a base item, say a longsword for +10 dmg, and finding the dmg to cost ratio. Then, taking the upgraded items and finding the ratio for each of the different stats compared to the ratio of the base items. Now, is it possible to average these numbers out into one number? Say i get the ratio of an items stats to its cost to be 5.2 to 1, 4.5 to 1, and 7.9 to 1. Is it correct to take an average of 5.2, 4.5, and 7.9 and use that to compare different items?
