Which Rectangle is More Like a Square?

Directions: Which rectangle is more like a square?  Rectangle A is 13 units by 15 units.  Rectangle B is 2 units by 3 units.



How can we determine which is more square like?  What does it mean to be square like?



There are many ways to approach this problem including finding out which fraction is closer to 1, dilating the 2×3 rectangle to become 10 by 15, etc. but Rectangle A is more square like.
