your example is an example of the mathematics, for example.
(dots = pixels)
----------- = 11.11 inch
---------- = 10.67 inch
my physics teachers insisted that you always use the units and when you
perform the mathematical operations on the values that you also do the
mathematical operations on the units as well. it is really handy for
checking your work (especially with more complicated mathematical
the problem with making a table with this information is that the
different printing devices work differently and need different
resolutions. the last time i was at a print shop, black and white
printing only demanded 150 pixels/inch while the color printing needed
another thing i noticed, making photo prints, 200 pixels/inch made
perfectly fine color prints.
