how to calculate resolution with pixel count and aspect ratio

The closest standard resolutions to that would be:

384×288

or

400×300

 

Which are 112.320 pixels and 120.000 pixels respectively.

But keep in mind the 4:3 is not always super accurate and the manufacturer could have chosen a slightly different format

I have an old camera with a crappy lcd screen. I want to know the resolution of the display, but the only information I could find on it was that it has 115,000 pixels. The aspect ratio appears to be 4:3, so can I somehow calculate the resolution with this knowledge?

Start with the square root of the pixel count (~339 in this case), and play around with the numbers until you get something that's close enough to the pixel count and the aspect ratio. If we started with 340 wide, we get 255 tall which gives us 86,700... so obviously this isn't the resolution, but it's a good enough starting point.

For 4:3 aspect ratio,

H = 4/3 ∙ V

and,

H ∙ V = 115,000

= (4/3 ∙ V) ∙ V = 115,000

= (4/3 ∙ V2) = 115,000

 

(4/3) V2 = 115,000

V2 = 86,250

V ≈ 294

 

H = 4/3 ∙ V

= 4/3 ∙ 294

≈ 392

 

392 × 294 = 115,248

Closest integer solution.

Bit of mathmatics.

 

If u have the ratio (C:R) and the resolution and want to find the number of columns (C) and rows (R) it goes as follows.

 

Ratio = 4:3 (C:R)

Pixel count = 115,000

 

C² = √ 115,000x4/3

 

C = 391 (or 392)

 

R² = √ 115,000x3/4

 

R = 294

 

391 x 294 = 114,954 (or 115,248)
