By what ratio

Hi, if I want to ask in a survey a ratio between two things the respondents do, what should the question look like? (e.g. if the respondents use both a PC and a Mac and I want to know the ratio of their usage between the two)

Q: In a typical week, by what ratio do you use a PC and a Mac?

Does this question make sense or is there a better way of asking it?
I've just googled by "By what ratio do you" and got only 11 hits, so I'm guessing there's a better way...

Thanks

    I'd probably say something like In a typical week what's the ratio been the time you spend on your PC and the time you spend on your Mac?

    I'm not happy with the by what ratio part of your question, Meijin.

    Less formal would be How much do you use your PC relative to your Mac?

    Thanks, Thomas. I like both suggestions. They'll be useful in my job of translating survey materials.
