# Coeifficient of Variation. Watch

1. Is this expressed as a percentage or as a ratio?

Thank you
2. in what context?
3. To measure the risk of investment
4. is the question stated to find the probability"measure"?
Im pretty sure its fine for both because percentage is a ratio, in itself, but I think if you were given the details of the question in terms of ratios, to just stick to ratios. i.e. instead of 0.45 = 45% if you understand what I mean?!
5. The question is given in terms of money values i.e. expected profit and we are asked to calculate the coefficient of variation for each of the 5 investments
6. percentage!
7. thank you
8. its best for comparison between each profit of investment, tidy !
