I don't understand how the last set of numbers in each series was derived or what they signify?

For instance, to determine the overall ratio for a given gear, let's say 1st and 5th gears with 13/49 sprockets: (Primary)2.652 X (Secondary)3.769 X (1st gear)1.93 = 19.28 and 2.652 X 3.769 X (5th gear)0.909 = 8.06
