This is the English section.

Maths questions need to be asked in the Maths section.

Mods could you move this to Maths pls. Thanks DG

In the meantime, just work backwards through the values

I doubt the op did it knowingly dg, probably just clicked on wrong section!
I have done it many a time, all sorts end up scattered.

I have moved the query to Maths now, (hopefully)

The only way I can approach these things is by giving each item a value.

Eg, make wizard 60. What would that make elf? And so on.

W = 2E

E = 5T

T = 1.5D

So W = 2 * 5 * 1.5 D
= 15 D

Wizard is 15 times more powerful than dwarf

So D = 1
T = 1.5 etc.

Algebra is not needed here - it's easiest to work backwards with numbers from a dwarf.

I'm glad that my suggestion turned out to be your way this time . Although momentarily having forgotten that a dwarf was part of the question I wondered why one would have to find one to get numbers from it

It has been a long day...
