Hey folks. Couple of math questions I'm just not sure about, assume 16x9 for all questions:
1. What's the formula for determining what the diagonal screen size will end up being if you know the width you would like the screen to be?
2. If I know I can fit say a 73" wide screen, how do I figure the exact H it needs to be to maintain that 16x9 aspect ratio?
3. If I know how large diagonally a screen I would like, what's the math for figuring out what the exact height and width would need to be (i.e. if I want a 100" diagonal 16x9 screen, how do I figure H and W)?
4. Lastly, all the same questions above, but with a true 2.35:1 screen (as oppossed to a 16x9 1.78:1 masked for a 2.35 DVD movie)?
Thanks a lot.
