Correct ratio.

At 80 I would appreciate confirmation of what I have worked out regarding the correct ratio for my photographs to get the most accurate print with minimum loss of image edges.

My camera is a Fuji X-T2 which has a 4000 X 6000 image from the sensor which equates to a 3:2 ratio.

I want to print A4 pictures which is 11.7" X 8.3" - fractionally over 1.4:1 ratio.

When editing and re sizing (cropping) in iPhoto the nearest ratio to the A4 is the 5:7 which I believe is again 1.4 :1

Am I thinking straight?

Yes you are thinking straight... A4 ratio is 1:1.4142 and 5 x 7 is 1:1.4, so a small difference, I don't use iPhoto, can you set a custom aspect ratio?
