can any knitters who are good at maths help me with a guage problem?

the item i'm knitting has a guage of 11sts and 15rows to 10x10cm.

my guage is 11sts & 12rows.

the pattern is mostly measured in cm so the row guage doesn't matter much but the pattern has come to a bit that asks for 6 garter rows to be knitted and i just can't for the life of me figure out what that is in centimeters, i think it's 4cm.

and i've spelled gauge wrong too.

From the gauge of the pattern 10cm = 15 rows therefore 1cm = 1.5 rows, 2cm=3 rows so 6 rows would be 4cm.

From your gauge 12 rows = 10cm so 6 rows = 5cm.

Does that help or have I confused you further?
