Dividing Head Question

I've just gotten a dividing head and have been playing with it, learning how to use it. For one of my projects, I need cut a gear with 97 teeth (it has to be 97 for the other things to work out). This equates to a ratio of 40/97 or 0.4123. The closest ratio I can get is to use 14 holes on a 34 hole circle which is a ratio of 0.4117.

Did I do this correctly? If I used 14 holes on the 34 hole circle, I will get my gear with 97 teeth? Appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!

Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
