    Can someone clear this up for me.

    I have a NMR spectrum, with three peaks. When I'm integrating, do I find the smallest and divide it individually by the two larger values?

    All the examples I can find have two peaks lol

    The integrations in NMR tell you the relative number of hydrogens in each environment. So with 3 peaks, if one peak is half the integration of the other two, you have half the number of protons in that environmens as the other two, e.g. 1 proton compared to 2 protons in the other two environments (1 : 2 : 2). Or it could be 2 : 4 : 4. If one peak is two thirds the integration of the other two, it could be 2 protons in that environment compared to 3 protons in the other two environments (2 : 3 : 3), or maybe it's 4 : 6 : 6. You don't really need to be dividing anything by anything. Just compare the relative sizes of the integrations.
