### Reference Help

Posted:

**September 13th, 2014, 9:10 pm**I'm trying to design an alicorn, and I need help with the reference point.

I need to find the ratio of 2:2+sqrt2 on the main diagonal, or the equivalent ratio on the edge. Basically it's so a square and a 1:1+sqrt2 rectangle can fit snugly on the main diagonal with the opposite corners lying on the edges of the square.

I tried to do the math myself using a calculator, and the result was ~.5857. But when I plugged that number into ReferenceFinder, it didn't give the point I needed. Can anyone figure out what I did wrong?

Also, I think this could be a good topic for anyone with a similar problem, unless the mods decide to move it. I know I've made a couple topics like this, but I can't seem to find them.
