Aaaand? Step two is to multiply the Space Marine numbers by a factor to get the relative efficiency of the two (since a marine costs 2.5 times as much as a guardsman).

You see, a 6 point lasgun is slightly more efficient than a 15 point bolter.

a 16 point IG heavy bolter is more efficient than a 25 point SM heavy bolter...and so on.

IG are more efficent at killing marines than marines are.

not really...it takes 132 points of lasguns or 135 points of bolters to kill a marine (assuming guardsmen and marines). however, the moment you start factoring in return fire, you'll notice the guardsmen's shooting ability dropping at a much higher rate...
