Hi, basically I need a function which will return a number for...

Given a number n (Say 800px) by what factor do I need to shrink it to
get it as close to but not over 300px?

Bear in mind that the number n may be 301px or 1638px

Thanks for any help!

That's not a number. Lets work with numbers.

The factor is simply 300/n.

300/800 = 0.375

800 * 0.375 = 300
