Getting 3:sqrt(2), but not in the answers.

Can someone elaborate on this?

If u take side of small square as 1 unit, its area is 1 square unit.

If u take side of large square as 3 units, its area is 9 square units.

This way large square has 800% area greater than smaller one.

800% greater. So if first (left) square has area 100, second (right) has 900.
area ratio 900:100 => 9:1
side ratio 3:1

Was making silly mistake.
Instead of 9:1, I was calculating with 8:1..

Thanks..
