Suppose that we calculate the calories and the quantity of sugar at the package of a product. For the calories we have mean value $10$ and standard variation $4,90$. For the quantity of sugar we have corresponding values $5,85$ and $3,38$, respectively. (Use CV). I want to find the relative variance between the calories and the quantity of sugar.

I have thought the following:

$$CV_{\text{cal}}=\frac{4,90}{10} 100%=49%$$

$$CV_{\text{sug}}=\frac{3,38}{5,85} 100%=57,77%$$

So the calories have higher relative variance inrelation to the quantity of sugar.

Am I right? Or have I done something wrong? (Thinking)
