In many expositions of the Ricardian model, a relative demand curve is used. For example, consider the figure here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparative_advantage#/media/File:World_relative_supply_and_demand_in_the_classical_Ricardo_model_of_one-factor_international_trade_between_two_countries.svg

How is this relative demand curve derived? Is it as simple as dividing the world demand curve for one commodity by the world demand curve for the other?
