I hope this makes it clear that there is no underlying assumption
about this ratio.
I'm not the one who originally responded, but I'm sure we all realize
there's no extra underlying assumption there. On the other hand, the
belief that A/B = n is crucial to the success of the whole procedure,
and the justification of that fact goes back to the standard method of
deriving the power rules for integrals and dervatives.

So we are still left with the question: what is new or different about
this approach?
