Default For the math wizards or die cutting machine users

Dh ordered me a Sizzix Vagabond which I guess will use Go dies and dies from other Sizzix machines in addition to those made specifically for the Vagabond machine. I'm excited to get it (in a few days because it's technically not a Christmas gift since he got me a new computer). Anyway I don't know how to figure out which dies I need to do HSTs. I usually use the scraptherapy cutting system for my scraps: 2" squares, 3 1/2" squares, & 5" squares. And when I want HSTs I put the squares together, draw a diagonal line, sew 1/4" from line method then trim to whatever size works.

In looking at the dies they size them like 2" x 3 5/8" and such. So how does this translate to what size squares they would make? I have no idea how to determine which dies to buy to make squares the sizes I need. Can anyone help me?
