8.5/4 = 2.125

11/5 = 2.20

Therefore you would have to enlarge more to fill the 11 inch length dimension. In doing so, you would lose or "crop" some of some of the photo in the width dimension.

If you expand the 4" dimension to 8.5", the 5 inch length dimension becomes

5 x 2.125 = 10.625 inches

You end up with an 8 1/2 x 10 5/8 inch enlargement

You have to measure the lengths of the golden rectangle and then you can solve for the golden ratio. ChaCha!
