I used the standard 48 divided by 72 on my calculator, and got .6666666666667

so 67%

disclaimer: I don't know if that's right. Hopefully somebody who does will chip in and give the right answer.

You can re-size anything using muphyaa's method. Oh, phooy. Airdave just said that. Disregard this message, please.

PS. Murphy, I think you got it right. I hope so, anyway, because I've been doing it that way.

I always knew it was divide one scale by the other, I just have a hard time figuring out which.
