I have a picture I want to draw and it's about 23 cm. x 15 cm. I gridded up the picture, and each square is 1 centimeter.

I have a bigger paper and it's about 30 cm. x 22 cm. I want why original picture to SOMEWHAT fit in the picture, so about how about how big will the squares be? There should still be 23 squares in length, and 15 squares in height. I want it to be big as possible (whatever fits on the paper). How do I do this?

23 x 15 is the aspect

30/23 & 22/15 are the two possible expansions

1.3043.... & 1.4666... , only the smaller expansion fits

{1.3043.... }

23x15 ==> 30x19.56... 30<=30 & 19.56 <= 22

{1.4666... }

23x15 ==> 33.73...*22 { note 33.73 is not <= 30}

how big will the squares be?

1.3043 cm

for longer side it should be approximately 1.3cm each square and shorter 1.5 in lenth so 1.3/1.5cm rectangles.
