Sorry to bother you with this and you don't have to if you don't want to but would you mind giving some thoughts on some Worm threads I made? I saw that you're both a Worm and JoJo fan so you should be a good judge of these matches, I'm trying to give it some exposure.
For this thread I'd appreciate input although even just a simple FRA vote will be good
And for this thread I just would like it if you could tell me if you think it's a mismatch and if I should just close it, I thought it was but Prom and Chariot thought it was interesting so i thought something could come of it.
We are given two ratios; 4.3 meters to 10 pixels (storey of a building) and 58.2 pixels to an unknown number of meters (river width).
We use 4.3 m / 10 px as a conversion factor, and multiply it by 58.2 px; we multiply out the top and divide by the bottom, while the pixels-unit cancels out, leaving us with meters. If we didn't divide by 10, units would not cancel out, so we'd have some number in px*m units, which doesn't make any sense.
This is basically how pixelscaling is done on the site in general, you measure an object with known dimensions and an object close to it with unknown dimensions, then use the former as a conversion factor to find the latter.
