Snippet Name: Number Functions: Calculate ratio between X and Y columns

Description: This block calculates the ratio between the X and Y columns of the RATIO table. If the ratio is greater than 0.72, the block inserts the ratio into RESULT_TABLE. Otherwise, it inserts -1.
If the denominator is zero, ZERO_DIVIDE is raised, and a zero is inserted into RESULT_TABLE.
