Worksheet 980

PPI can be calculated from knowing the diagonal size of the screen in inches and the resolution in pixels (width and height). This can be done in two steps

Using the Pythagorean theorem, for 3 different screen resolutions:

Diagonal Resolution - Pixels

Using the Diagonal Resolution from the previous formula we calculate the PPI for 3 corresponding screen sizes :

Pixels Per Inch (PPI)
