## Main Question or Discussion Point

I was hoping someone might be able to help sort out where I am going wrong in my calculation of the ratio of relative difference.

Value1= .0759

Value2= .0544

SqRt(.0759 / .0544) = 1.181195

The above calculation seems to work, but in a situation like below where the values are reversed the calculation is missing something.

SqRt(.0544/ .0759 ) = 0.846600

The reason I say this is if I utilize the ratio to split $5,000 there is an overage

$5,000 / 2 = $2,500

$2,500 * 1.181195 = $2,952.98

&

$5,000 / 2 = $2,500

$2,500 * 0.846600 = $2,116.50

$2,952.98 + $2,116.50 = $5,069.48 ... $69.48 too much

Any idea where I messed things up ?
