Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

If I am twice as heavy as you the ratio of our weights is #2:1# whether you weigh me in pounds, kilograms or anything else.

If I am #"100 kg"# and you are #"50 kg"#, the ratio is #100:50 = 2:1#

If I am #"220 lb"# and you are #"110 lb"#, the ratio is #220:110 = 2:1#

#("100 kg = 220 lb, 50 kg = 110 lb")#
