EDIT:- What happens if you take Geometric Mean (or use log of the ratios?)
Statistics was not my strong subject.

The geometric mean is 1.31.

My original assumption is based on a standard error for a normal distribution, which it is not the distribution of this data. Here is a stem and leaf diagram betrig:

Code:
1.0   9,4,5,2,3,2,5,2,5,3,2
1.1   6,1,3,6,8,7,7,3,0,0
1.2   7,3,0,8,2,1,3,7,6,0
1.3   3,8,6,9,6,5
1.4   4,1,7,2,1
1.5   0,0,7,4,7
1.6   3,7
1.7   5,6
1.8   8,7
1.9
2.0   0
2.1   
2.2
2.3
2.4
2.5   7
More criticism welcome, along with possible answers to anx1's questions.
