Best Answer

Such a fraction need not exist. Consider, the measures of temperature:0 deg Celsius = 32 deg Fahrenheit. The fraction is 0/32 = 0.

5 deg C = 41 deg F so the fraction is 5/40 = 1/8.

-17.77... deg C = 0 deg F and the fraction is not defined!


Such a fraction makes sense only if both measurements are on a ratio scale. If that is the case then - and only then - the fraction is a conversion factor.

A fraction that compares two equivalent measurement?

There is no particular name unless the two measurements are on absolute scales. For example, the fraction 5/41 compares the equivalent temperatures: 5 deg Celsius and 41 deg Fahrenheit. But the equivalent fraction 10/82 does not compare equivalent temperatures since 10 deg C = 50 deg F. So the fraction has no particular meaning and so no name.


What is a fraction that compares two equivalent measurements called?

It may be called the conversion factor.Note, however, that this only works when both measurements are absolute measurements, or equivalently, the measurement is on a ratio scale. For example, a fraction representing equivalent Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures is not a conversion factor because the two Zero values do not correspond to the same temperature.
