Revision for Manual transmissions

How do you calculate the transmissions OVERALL GEAR RATIO? Multiplying the gearbox ratio by the final drive ratio

A damaged interlock mechanism could allow what to happen? The transmission to lock up
What is the purpose of the interlock mechanisim in a manual transmission? To prevent two gears being selected at the same time
