Smaller than -1 would be hard to distinguish without a microscope...
Anything smaller than a -1 would be impossible to measure.
Taking the formula: Height = (12x + 20)/32 inches Width = (7x+11)/32 inches
...then for any X = (-2) or smaller, you'd have a negative measurement.
Height = [ (12)(-2) + 20 ] / 32
[ (-24) + 20 ] / 32
= ( - 0.125) inches.
Sorry... can't happen in the real world.
And besides... I absolutely refuse to fire up my electron microscope JUST to be able to play with my Negative Giant Pyramids....
