An important exercise in the study of rational approximants is to derive their metric, especially in relation to the corresponding quasicrystal or the underlying clusters. Kuo’s model has been the widely accepted model to calculate the metric of the decagonal approximants. Using an alternate model, the metric of the approximants and other complex structures with the icosahedral cluster are explained elsewhere. In this work a comparison is made between the two models bringing out their equivalence. Further, using the concept of average lattices, a modified model is proposed.
