Mark wants to enlarge a 4-inch by 6-inch photo so that it has a height of 15inches. Use a ratio table to determine the new width of the photo.

Result

w =  10 cm

Solution:

a=4 b=6 h=15 w=a h/b=4 15/6=10 cma=4 \ \\ b=6 \ \\ h=15 \ \\ w=a \cdot \ h/b=4 \cdot \ 15/6=10 \ \text{cm}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
