Quite simply, I am trying reduce the size of a rectangle in ratio so that is has a certain area. I have a rectangle of area
X * Y, I have a target area
A, how would I get the multiplier
M such that
X * M and
Y * M equals
Obviously multiplying X and Y by the ratio between the current and target area will not work, my gut feeling is I will also need the ratio between X and Y.
Sorry for such a simple question, happy to be dup hammered or closed, also sorry for the tag, I am just a bit lost,.
