This calculator determines the size of a square to cut to create
both unfinished Set In Triangles and unfinished Corner Triangles
given the size of the finished square to which these triangles correspond.
(Please note that Set In Triangles are sometimes called Quarter Square Triangles (QSTs)
and Corner Triangles are sometimes called Half Square Triangles (HSTs).)
For example, suppose the length of the side of the finished square is 5 inches. The calculator will determine that you will need to cut a square with sides whose length is 4 1/2 inches to make 2 unfinished Corner Triangles and a square with sides whose length is 8 3/8 inches to make 4 unfinished Set In Triangles.
