No, it is not equivalent.

Think of it this way. If you had £12 and I had £5 then you would have money in the ratio of 12 to 5 compared to me. If you then only had £5 and I had £17 (which represents the new ratio of 5 to 17) you would not agree that this was equivalent as a proportion (you would rightly feel that you had lost out)!
