By computing the product of square root of 2 times square root of 2.
In the ISO A series the area of the paper changes by a factor of 2 (or ½) from one size to the next. On an ISO A2 sheet you can put two ISO A3 sheets side by side, with the longest edges. When the area changes by a factor of 2 (or ½) than the edges need to change by the factor of square root of 2 (or 1/√2 = √2/2). And this is also the factor by which the line width changes. And the font height accordingly.

There's something the technicians need to learn from the artists. If it isn't aesthetically pleasing, it's probably wrong.
