Factor of the quotient that indicates the relationship base unit of measure : billing unit of measure.


To convert a quantity, whose unit of measure is not the same as the base unit of measure, into the base unit of measure, the system requires a quotient:

Quantity (in alternative unit of measure) = quotient * quantity (in base unit of measure)


Enter the number of units of the alternative unit of measure (denominator) that corresponds to the number of units of the base unit of measure (numerator).


The alternative unit of measure is kilogram (kg). The base unit of measure is piece (PC). 5 kg correspond to 3 pieces.

5 kg = 3 PC => 1 kg = 3/5 PC

In this case, the quotient is therefore 3/5 (the numerator being 3 and the denominator 5).


You may enter only whole numbers in the numerator and denominator fields; that is, if 3.14 m² correspond to one piece, you must enter integer multiples (314 m² = 100 PC). In this case, the quotient is therefore 100/314 (the numerator being 100 and the denominator 314).
