### Degeneracy and Volume

Is W2/W1 always equal to V2/V1?

They are not equal values, however, they are proportional

The proportion between W2/W1 and V2/V1 will always be equal, although the value of W2 and V2 will be different.

How can the proportions be the same but the values be different? Can someone please elaborate or give an example so I can further understand? (:

W2 does not necessarily equal V2 and W1 does not equal V1. But, as a straight forward example, imagine how 1/2 is equal to 50/100. 1 does not equal 50 and 2 does not equal 100, but they both represent the same proportion.

You can have their ratios be equal, but the expressions do not have to be equal to each other.
