French term or phrase: au moyen du quotient amplitude
This text speaks to a table of results of the dust-releasing properties of asbestos-impregnated fabric. I get the impression that I'm not totally understanding either the phrasing or the syntax

"On a vérifié que la condition préalable a l'application de ce test, c'est-à-dire une distribution des différences proche de la normale, était remplie au moyen du quotient amplitude de variation/ecart type. II s'est avéré que la concentration numérique des fibres était significativement moins élevée pour E et significativement plus élevée pour A que pour les autres tissus."
