Hey! :)

When looking at the surface area to volume ratio of a cell it's meant to be that the larger this ratio the more efficient the cell is in diffusion etc. I don't get how a ratio of 6:1 though could be the larger ratio in comparison to 54:27...Im just confused with this...to me 54:27 looks like it should be seen as the larger ratio?

Any help would be very much appreciated :)

Thanks!
