A6 compared to other size

An A6 is a quarter of an A4, the very common paper size that is generally used in home printers. All paper sizes in the A-series have a length-width ratio of √2:1. In other words, every size in this series is half the size of the size above it: when you fold an A4 down the middle, you get an A5. Fold that A5 again, and you get A6!
