T:S is the ratio of the area between the triangle and the square.

THE "t" is the length of the triangle and the "s" stands for the sides of the square.

...........
area (T)=sq root (3)/4* (a1)^2,a1= triangle side.
area(sq.)= (a2)^2, a2 = side of sq.
area(T)=Area(sq)
so,
sq root(3)/4*(a1)=(a2)^2.
hence, a1/a2=2:4^radical3.
