However, the value of the ratio by itself is often not enough; we also need an expected, or benchmark, value to compare it with. For example, suppose that we were examining firms in an industry where sales figures generally fall into the range of $100,000 to $1,000,000 per year, and that those same firms usually have from $25,000 to $250,000 invested in fixed assets. 4 to $1,000,000/$25,000 = 40. However, common sense would seem to suggest that these two variables should be pretty highly correlated with one another, particularly for firms within the same industry like this, so that we would normally expect to see the firms with $100,000 in sales also being the ones with $25,000 in fixed assets, and those with $1,000,000 in sales being the ones with $250,000 in fixed assets.
