    two different meanings of the expression "in terms of"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether Im right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    1.We oibtained these values in terms of the following formula.

    2.We can express these relationships in terms of the following formula.

    In my opinion the meaning of the expression in question in the former sentence is as measured or indicated by, on the basis of while in the latter sentence it is in relation to, with reference to.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
