How many Rhode Islands in a Wales?

Interesting article here:

"One Antarctic ice shelf has completely disappeared and another has lost a chunk three times the size of Rhode Island" 

In a UK report it would be related to the size either of  Wales or the Isle of Wight. So here's a handy reckoner for you:

Rhode Island = 1,045 sq. miles
Wales = 8,019 sq.miles
Wight = 147 sq.miles

So there are 7.67 Rhode Islands in a Wales and 7,10 Wights in a Rhode Island

Hope that helps.
