Does anyone know how you can prove that the ratio of the longer side length to the shorter side length of a piece of paper is equal to root2?

Or the way Trump would do it; U need these 2 things:

1) A ruler
2) This is the important thing. U get an A4 Page


U measure The length and breadth

then length / breadth

I got length = 29.5
breadth = 21.5


29.5/ 21.5 = Approx sqrt2 as I got 1.40476...

Funny thing is that it actually approaches root2 isnt that scary, I vote for trumps method;


anyway i see someone has already solved it so no need for me to do it v_v
