The objective is to find out how many units from value B can evenly go into 1 unit in Value A

I assume this will create a common denominator?? i.e. 1 unit of Value A = how many % of value B

We can safely assume that 20 (or 100%) of value A = 50 (or 100%) of value B.

If someone could explain to me how this equation would work I would really appreciate it thanks.
