How do you square up a 16 1/2 inch block when the largest square ruler you have it 12 inches?

Do you have a 6x24" ruler? If you do, you can align one side at the 10 1/2 inch mark on the square then butt the ruler up against the opposite side of the square. Basically using 10 1/2 of square + 6 of ruler = 16 1/2. Cut along the ruler to square up that side. Continue doing this for each of the other 3 sides.
Hope you understand my explanation...
