    Sorry I don't have time to do the problem out right now, but you should draw a picture and use the triangles in the corners of the big square. The length of the sides of those triangles. And try to edit your posts for spelling errors next time, it's very hard to understand the question.

    this is late

    Sorry, your Web browser is not Java compatible. This prototype will not be of much interest to you.

    Try finding the ratio yourself (you can move the top left corner to change the size of the square)













    I can't wait till mathguru finishes the program completely!!!

    See Diagram. If the sides of square B are L the sides of square A are

    (L/2)*sqrt(2) = L/sqrt(2).

    So the two areas are L^2 and L^2/2, so the smaller square has half the
    area of the larger.
